An International Exchange Workshop for the Department of Anatomy of the College of Medicine and the Riseisha College of Medicine and Sports of Osaka, Japan

Department of Anatomy

The Department of Anatomy partnered with the Department of Chinese Medicine in international exchange activities with Japanese universities during the summers of 2014 and 2016. The Department of Anatomy hosted an educational workshop for students of rehabilitation and acupuncture related majors from the Riseisha College of Medicine and Sports in Osaka, Japan. This event gave the students an opportunity to explore and appreciate the sophisticated wonders of human anatomy.

The Department of Anatomy arranged a two-day gross anatomy experiment workshop, led by the two teaching assistants - Mr. Xian-Feng Chen and Miss Shi-Yun Chen. To facilitate discussion, the participants were grouped into two, with ten students in each group. In addition to hands-on dissection, tests were conducted at the end of each class in order to assess how much students understood the workshop material. Consecutive interpreting was provided to facilitate the understanding of anatomical knowledge. Because the Japanese students who participated in the workshop were already equipped with basic human anatomy knowledge, they were able to understand the class materials easily and respond instantly.

The goal of this workshop was for students of the Riseisha College of Medicine and Sports to acquire practical anatomical knowledge to enhance growth in the professional field. During the teacher appreciation ceremony, we thanked the student Sato for applying his expertise in acupuncture and assisting in the teaching process. In addition, it was hoped that students could meticulously explore and understand the structure of joints, so the instructors can lead an in-depth discussion on the subject. During the workshop, we also observed that each Japanese student possessed a self-made anatomy workbook which has been used to record daily newly-learned materials. From this observation, we can see and appreciate the rigorous attitude that Japanese students have toward learning.

In collaboration with these foreign students, the faculty members not only demonstrated their expertise on the subject matter, but they also obtained an abundance of valuable teaching and learning experiences.
