Chinese International Students and Alumni Visited Our University for the 9th Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) Homecoming Day.

On Sunday, October 14, 2018, Chinese international students and alumni attended Tokyo Medical and Dental University Homecoming Day to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the university’s founding.

In this long history of 90 years, a lot of students from all over the world have studied medicine and dentistry at TMDU. They have been active in various fields with careers in Japan and on the global stage. Since the 1980s, China, the most popular among all the countries, has sent about 770 people to come study at TMDU.

Chinese international students and alumni started their own initiative with this year being the 90th anniversary, and they invited about 100 alumni from China, Japan, and the United States, etc., to participate in Homecoming Day.

TMDU’s President, elective director, and supervisors were invited to the reception on the previous day, and they enjoyed reuniting and reflecting on the past decades of memories.

From their substantial donations to the Tokyo Medical and Dental University Fund, a sundial was offered as a memento of the celebration of the 90th anniversary.

We had the unveiling ceremony of the memorial sundial.

The sundial tells the time according to the direction of the sun’s shadow that falls on the surface of the dial. The memorial sundial was placed in TMDU Garden, 知と癒しの庭 (chi to iyashi no niwa) in Japanese, as it is the best place for sunlight.
Words are carved on the plate on the surface of the sundial. It means that you aim to become a doctor with compassion and advanced skills. It is almost the same meaning as TMDU’s Mission “Cultivating Professionals with Knowledge and Humanity”.

It is our sincere hope for everyone’s continued success and we look forward to seeing everyone again in near future.
