Programs by Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine have been adopted into the “2019 Projects for the global expansion of medical technologies”. These projects are conducted by The National Center for Global Health and Medicine. Their aims are to promote the growth of the medical field in Japan by sharing knowledge and experiences between various medical institutions and increasing the global use of medical equipment and to improve the Japanese health industry by improving public health and medicine in the other countries.
One of these projects, the “Philippine Medical Imaging Diagnostic Capacity Enhancement Support Project”, had eight doctors and radiologists from the Philippines visit the OCU Abeno Campus on Friday, 15 November, 2019. They attended a lecture by Sawako Uchida, Department of Hepatology of OCU Graduate School of Medicine, on the medical education system and diagnostic imaging knowledge service. Afterwards they had a discussion with doctors in the Department of Hepatology and visited the OCU Medical School Skills Simulation Center (SSC). The question and answer sessions were very active and the training was fruitful for both sides.
