Since its establishment in 1946 to enhance the general medical education of dental students, Ichikawa General Hospital has steadily expanded its list of services.
Today this 570-bed general hospital boasts 20 medical departments: dentistry, dental and oral surgery, internal medicine, rehabilitation, gastroenterology,
cardiology, pediatrics, surgery, orthopaedics, neurosurgery, dermatology, cardiovascular surgery, psychiatry, neurology, urology, gynecology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, radiology and anesthesiology.
A team of specialist instructors provides dental students with expert medical clinical education, and others further dental clinical training to dentists after graduation. In 2006, the Oral Cancer Center was opened as a specialist wing.
