Summary of our selected project "Inter-university Exchange Program toward Medical and Dental Networking in Southeast Asia

With the aim of strengthening Japan’s global presence in the fields of medicine and dentistry, Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) will form a consortium with Chulalongkorn University (CU), University of Indonesia (UI), and the University of Medicine and Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City (UMP), establishing a network based on Japan’s strong points in such areas as medical and dental technology, materials, and equipment.

Exchange programs for students

Based on a review of each university’s academic calendar/curriculum/credit transfer system, exchange programs for undergraduate and postgraduate students will be organized with a focus on quality management. Under the supervision of the faculty of host universities, students will receive practical instructions in research and clinical settings, and internship programs outside university (at companies, labs, public health centers and other institutions).

International seminars and global retreats

To enhance the knowledge and skills of students/young researchers, academic meetings with appropriate themes will be organized in the four countries. Global retreats will be held to inspire interest among young people in international exchange conducive to network formation.
