Medical Consultation Department for Foreigners
The Medical Consultation Department for Foreigners was established on October 1st, 2001. It is aimed at offering foreigners residing in Japan a high level of medical assistance. This department consists of hospital staff members, working in cooperation with foreign medical doctors. They provide assistance with setting-up appointments and hospitalization procedures, and also provide interpretation services.
Appointments can be made through the Reception Desk by telephone (078-382-5264), facsimile (078-382-5265), or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). For fax or e-mail users, you can access the Kobe University Homepage and use the formatted file for making appointments. Callers will be referred to someone proficient in English. Requests for consultation can be made in either English or Japanese.
With the recent advances in globalization, we are anticipating the increasing demand for an internationalized medical consultation and treatment department. We are aiming to be the base for international medicine in Kobe, a city historically famous for being internationalized.
