CRM (OB/GY) department has an obligation to offer medical services, education, research as one of the clinical departments in national graduate school, and has duty on making a mutual cooperation with local gynecological institutions.
Our main objectives are
1, Investigation for a new progress in treatment technique
2, Acquisition of medical knowledge and procedure
3, Providing systemic lecture about women’s physiological and pathological change during adolescence through senescence.
Aims of research works are focusing on reproductive medicine, perinatal medicine and oncology.
Educational intention in medical doctor course and nursing course includes systemic lectures, clinical conferences and special lecture by many extramural speakers. During Bed-Side Learning period, students should be treated as one of medical stuffs, attend all of deliveries and be present at gynecological procedure. Several OB/GY institutions will be provided as an extramural drills.
For intractable sterilization, satisfactory results are obtained with endoscopic examinations and IVF-ET methods. Health care unit for menopausal women was established , where inspections for atherosclerosis, osteoporosis (DEXA), autonomic nervous system are performed, and postmenopausal managements are provided including HRT, mental care and counseling.
After construction of LDR(labor, delivery, recovery) unit, cure for complicated pregnancies is now carried out, and cases of deliveries are rising now.
Malignant gynecological tumor is also an important aim of this department, for which surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy with complete cure are applied to patients. For benign tumor and endometriosis, laparoscopic operations are aggressively performed, whose number is now increasing.
