Niigata University will hold a webinar, "Japan-Russia Online Symposium on Medical Education" in collaboration with Moscow State University, Russia on Monday, 21 June.
The event, albeit virtually, brings together global and regional experts to discuss the vision, opportunities and challenges for a range of educational programs in medical sciences.
We regard this event as a pre-event of "Japan-Russia Scientific Forum," which will be held in September as a related event of "The Third General Assembly Meeting of the Association of Institutions of Higher Education of the Russian Federation and Japan," which is hosted by Niigata University.
The webinar is open to medical professionals in Japan and Russia.

Aims and Objectives:
The importance of the cultivation of human resources in the field of medical sciences has been growing more than ever due to the continued spread of COVID-19 and emerging global health issues which need to be solved by medical experts.
This forum sets its theme as “The Present and Future of Medical Education in Japan and Russia,” and brings clinicians and educators together to facilitate sharing of research, educational activities, and discussion of important current issues in medical education in Japan and Russia.
This September, Niigata University is to host “The Third General Meeting of the Association of Institutions of Higher Education of the Russian Federation and Japan," and in conjunction with the meeting, “The Japan-Russia Scientific Forum,” focusing on the field of medical sciences, will be organized as well. Through the sharing of good educational practices in Japan and Russia, this forum will pave the way to have more detailed objectives and constructive discussion for the upcoming Scientific Forum in September.
