joining the FETP from the Okayama City Health Center. We had an E.coli
O157 outbreak in 1997, and we had a hard work for its response and
analysis. Personally, I am interested in HIV/AIDS prevention and control.
I fully realized importance of epidemiological point in it, so I expect
to master field epidemiology during the FETP. We welcome query from
the local Governments. Please feel free to contact with FETP.
I am seconded from the Kyoto City
Department of Health. I graduated from Hyogo Medical College, and
received clinical training of internal medicine at the Kyoto Municipal
Hospital. I was working at the department of neurology, the Kyoto
Municipal Hospital. I was also assigned at the Fushimi health center
until 1998, but my duty was not covering public health intervention
a lot. I hope I would be in charge of food-borne and infectious disease
control and prevention after FETP.
Since I graduated from Niigata University, Department of Medicine in 1992, I was working as dermatologist at Jikei Medical University. Infectious diseases often become topics of Japanese media. Considering such present situation, I strongly realized necessity of epidemiology and applied to FETP. I would like to be in charge of nosocomial infection control in future.
I grew up in Okinawa Prefecture, and Osaka University Department of Pediatrics sent me to the program. In 1991, Japanese encephalitis cases were reported in the US Military base in Okinawa. I could join the disease control team from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That was impressive. I studied viral infectious diseases at the Osaka University. I like to learn thoroughly methodology of large-scale infectious disease control and prevention during FETP.
graduated from the University of
the Ryukyus in 1990. I was seconded to FETP from Department of Microbiology,
Oita Medical University. In order to be expert of infectious disease
control, I majored internal medicine and microbiology, however I keenly
felt importance of epidemiology. We live in a borderless world. Applying
field epidemiology we are learning in FETP, I like to be involved
in internationally synchronized infectious disease control.
