Choosing a doctor

In bigger medical facilities such as general hospitals where there are many doctors, you might not be able to choose a doctor. You can ask for a doctor, but they might not be able to promise you that the particular doctor will see you that day.

If you go to a clinic that has only 1 doctor, then you wouldn’t have to worry about that.

The Japanese medical license is only good in Japan, since each country has its own licensing system.

In Japan, doctors go through 6 years of medical collage, and they get eligible to take a national medical
license. With the medical license, they still need to go through a 2-year training. After all that extensive education and training, they are finally recognized as a capable doctor.


In Japan, 80% of doctors are male doctors, and only 20% is female doctors. Many doctors study abroad, so they are comfortable in English!
