  • Examine and assess patients attending the clinic

  • Arrange, when necessary, for further examinations or tests, including x-rays
  • Interpret the results of tests and provide treatment accordingly
  • Ensure appropriate specialist referrals
  • Prescribe and supervise inoculation programmes for patients
  • Provide health education advice for patients

You must have:

  • Significant experience of practising medicine at a reputable medical institution in Japan or similar experience
  • In-depth and up-to-date knowledge and experience of medical practice in Japan or similar knowledge or experience and fluency in  the Japanese language to meet the expectation of Japanese patients

In addition, you should be able to provide two references.
