1. What made you come train at Shinshu University School of Medicine and how did you find the School through your stay?
I decided to train at Shinshu University School of Medicine because of its reputation as an outstanding medical school in Nagano prefecture and its established exchange program with my home university. During my stay, I found every staff to be incredibly supportive. The school has a knowledgeable faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and a strong sense of community among students. Overall, it was a rewarding experience that helped me develop my skills and knowledge in the visited departments.

2. Please describe your training at host department/lab.
My training was very well guided by the doctors of the respective departments. I would receive a detailed plan every day and be mentored for almost every surgery. Sometimes I was able to participate in procedures and sometimes I would simply observe. Any questions would be happily answered and demonstrated.

3. Please list what you have gained from your experiences through the training at Shinshu University and the stay in Matsumoto, Japan.
Through my training at Shinshu University and my stay in Matsumoto I have gained invaluable clinical experience, enhanced my understanding of medical practices, expanded my cultural awareness, improved my communication skills, and developed lasting connections with students and mentors. Additionally, I have gained insights into Japanese healthcare systems and traditions, which have enriched my perspective as a medical student.

4. How do you think you can apply those experiences to your future career?
I hope to build upon my experiences by incorporating the clinical skills and knowledge acquired into my practice, using my gained communication skills to better connect with patients from diverse backgrounds, and to adapt to various medical settings. Additionally, the connections made with students and mentors will continue to serve as valuable resources for collaboration and learning in my future endeavors.

5. Advice to those who are interested in studying at Shinshu University.
Do it! You won't regret it. You will have a wonderful time - during training as well as in your free time. Japanese people are some of the most polite and friendly people you can meet - and you will have the chance to form great connections and friendships. Connect with as many people as you can and try to seize every opportunity.
