Tetsuro Aita, MD

[Japanese version]

Dr. Tetsuro Aita joined Department of Clinical Epidemiology as a graduate student in April 2021. Dr. Aita was born in Yamagata Prefecture in 1987. Dr. Aita graduated from Fukushima Medical University and earned a MD degree in 2012. He is currently working at Department of General Internal Medicine, Fukushima Medical University Hospital.

“For the past 9 years, I have trained as a general internal medicine physician through working in various forms of medical care, including those in remote areas and isolated islands, community hospitals, and a university hospital. While examining patients as best as I can, I became interested in clinical research, especially clinical epidemiological research that can solve questions in clinical practice, and I have decided to join the department to concentrate on my studies. I feel that core skills in clinical research can be an advantage in the future. I will learn to disseminate clinical research from Fukushima to the world, to help solving questions generated from clinical practice.”
