HOME > Our Roles
The Radiation Disaster Medical Center was established in Fukushima Medical University Hospital in June 2012 as a part of the Fukushima Recovery Vision Plan in response to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) accident, which followed the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2011.
As a secondary radiation emergency medical institute on the Japan Nuclear Emergency Plan, we have cooperated with various fields of clinical medicine including emergency medicine,radiation medicine, internal medicine, and surgery. Now, we prepare for possible accidents associated with the ongoing reactor decommissioning, as well as other radiation emergencies in the Fukushima Prefecture, We are currently supporting the creation of medical preparedness system assuming the possibility of an unexpected nuclear accident of a similar scale, while providing medical advice and contributing to the study on health risks from chronic low-dose radiation exposure. Another important mission of our center is the development of human resources. We provide medical education and training for undergraduate and postgraduate students and promote domestic and international commitment in the field of radiation emergency and disaster medicine.
