High-school students from Republic of Indonesia has visited our university
On October 28th, 7 high-school students from the Republic of Indonesia came to our university to visit our research facilities.
They were invited by the Shizuoka Prefectural Culture and Tourism Department through the "Sakura Science Plan", an exchange program of the Japan Science and Technology Agency. This program aims to promote interest in studying in Shizuoka Prefecture by helping overseas students to visit local universities, giving them a deeper understanding of our prefecture's features including our "Healthy Longevity" focus and the latest research, techniques and efforts in the fields of health and medicine.
Beginning with a welcome greeting from Dr. Seiji Yamamoto, Executive Director for Education & Collaboration Development of our university, the students visited laboratories in three facilities, Surgery 2, Anesthesiology & Critical Care Medicine, and Cellular & Molecular Anatomy. They learned about our research through doctor & researcher explanations. The students asked many questions about what they saw and heard with great interest.
Through this visit and others like it, growing interest in education in Shizuoka is expected.
