Each year, students from Tokyo Women’s Medical University (TWMU) participate in an exchange program with medical schools in the US (Brown, Columbia, Mt. Sinai, Tufts, and U of Texas Houston), Belgium, China, England, France, and Korea. Students begin preparing for their study abroad experience at spring informational meetings at TWMU (photo at left), go through interviews and training, and then travel the following year to rotate through a teaching hospital abroad. TWMU welcomes exchange students from abroad each year as well.
Chiyomi Maruki and Kaoru Suzuki, two 5th year medical students, are participating in clinical rotations at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine this winter. As part of the exchange program, Chiyomi and Kaoru recently gave a presentation to the JMSA members-in-training.
