Inpatient Hospital Ward

 In the Hokkaido University Department of Dermatology, resident doctors (2nd-year junior resident doctors and senior resident doctors) administer treatment under the instruction of doctors who graduated from the department four to six years earlier and Ph.D. course students. During the first half of FY2017, Dr. Ken Natsuga served as chief of the ward, and for the second half of the year, I succeeded him. Some doctors left the ward, but we’ve be able to keep managing it smoothly.
 The inpatients numbered 488 in 2017. The ward operation rate was 98.8%, and the average stay was 15.9 days. As usual, patients with malignant melanomas predominated, followed by those with squamous cell carcinomas, basal cell carcinomas and psoriasis vulgaris/ psoriatic arthritis. Reflecting demographic aging, cases of squamous cell carcinoma have been increasing recently. Most of the patients are in-patients who were referred by other medical institutions. I’d like to thank all the doctors from the bottom of my heart.
