The Nishimiya Fellows Program

Written by JMSA. Posted in JMSA Projects

 

The Nishimiya Fellows Program is a week-long seminar held at Fukushima Medical University (FMU) that introduces students to the topics of disaster medicine and gives them an opportunity to learn more about the long-lasting effects of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated northeast Japan in 2011. The program was established in 2012 with support from JMSA, JAMSnet, Consortium for Japan Relief, Fukushima Medical University, and The Rockefeller Group. This program was organized as part of the Honjo-JMSA and the Nishioka-JMSA scholarship programs. 

This year, 3 Columbia students will be participating in the program at Fukushima Medical University in June. For more information, please visit the program website.
