In the Consultation Room

  • Drug prescriptions, requests for examinations, and appointments are handled using computers in the Osaka University Hospital.
  • The drugs prescribed in all the clinical sections are prepared and handed over at pharmacies outside of the hospital. Please take the prescription written by your physician to your local health insurance pharmacy to receive the preparation. We provide information services at the Prescription Consultation at the hall on the first floor of the outpatient ward. There you can find out the location of health insurance pharmacies or have the prescription sent to the pharmacy in advance by fax.
  • There are no forms to fill out because requests for examinations are handled by computer. You need only follow the guide card received from your attending physician. The guide card provides instructions for the necessary examinations.
  • Please make an appointment through your attending physician at the end of consultation for your next consultation, if needed.
    An appointment card indicating the date (day and time) of the next consultation will be issued at the Payment Corner. Even when an automated payment machine is used for payment, the appointment date will be printed out on the bottom of the receipt. If you cannot visit the hospital on the appointed day, please contact the appointments center by 5:00 pm on the day of the missed appointment.
