2015 EHC Orientation Meeting!

Dear 2015 Exploring Health Care Program Participants,

Hello and はじめまして! My name is Kazutoh Ishida and I work with Ellison on the Exploring Health Care (EHC) Program.

As Ellison wrote to you earlier, I will be holding an orientation meeting on Saturday, February 28 from 12:30 pm till about 5:30 pm at Tokyo Women's Medical University (TWMU). (Please note that the start time is slightly earlier than what we have told you before.)

Below you can find information about the venue and what will be covered during the meeting.

Saturday, Feb. 28th, 12:30-5:30pm

Tokyo Womens Medical University (中央校舎524教室)

Orientation Agenda

  • Orientation by Hamamoto-san @ Nikomaru Tour
  • Ice breaker and Program Orientation by Kazutoh Ishida
  • Preparation session by Thomas-sensei (EHC Facutly in Residence) and Esther Hirokawa (EHC Japan Coordinator)
  • Advising session by VIA alumni

Also, as you saw in the email from Ellison, there will be an optional casual gathering over dinner after the session (probably from around 18:30 in Shinjuku) which I hope many of you can also join. We will send you more information about this later.

If you cannot join the orientation meeting and have not emailed me yet, please let me know by email at your earliest convenience. I will follow up with you in early March and share what we will cover in the orientation meeting by email.

I look forward to seeing many of you on February 28!
