2016 EHC Tokyo Orientation Meeting!

Dear 2016 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 Sunday, February 28 from 12:30 pm till 4:30 pm at Nihon University School of Medicine.

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

Sunday, Feb. 28th, 12:30-4:30pm

Nihon University School Of Medicine

Itabashi, Tokyo

The session will be held at 24番講堂 which is on the second floor of the 本館 building. Their campus map be be viewed from www.med.nihon-u.ac.jp/access.html.

Orientation Agenda

  • Orientation by Hamamoto-san @ Nikomaru Tour
  • Ice breaker and Program Orientation by Kazutoh Ishida
  • Preparation session by Dr. Takayuki Oshimi (VIA Medical Programs Advisor)
  • Advising session by VIA alumni

The first session will be an orientation by our travel agent Hamamoto-san from 12:30. If you did NOT purchase your airplane ticket from Hamamoto-san, then you can join the meeting from 13:00.


Also, as you saw in the email from Ellison, there will be a nomikai after the session from 17:30 close to Ikebukuro station. Many of you signed up for the nomikai, so that will be a good opportunity to casually talk to other participants!


If you have any questions about the orientation meeting, feel free to email me at kazutoh@viaprograms.org. I look forward to seeing many of you on February 28!
