This Project has been developed under the cooperation between Jiangsu People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and JICE to nurture high-level human resources for Japan and Jiangsu Province. It is one of the projects aimed to develop human resources for young elite medical doctors of Jiangsu Province of China.

Wrap-up session was held on November 26th 2013, which was the last day of the training program. At the session, the Chinese doctors stated that they’ve achieved so much through this training program. They said that they acquired advanced technologies of diagnosis and treatments in their respective fields, attended clinical case conferences and meetings, observed surgeries, and read through various documents. They also said that they have learned how to establish a firm relationship with the patients, how it was important to handle personal information with utmost care, and how to run a hospital. They have been awarded with the certificate for the completion of the training program from Ms. Sachiko Yamano, President of JICE, at the end of the session.
At the farewell party after the wrap-up session, the Japanese medical counterparts who attended the party made a statement saying, “This training is acknowledged as the high-level human resource development program for doctors selected by the Health Department of Jiangsu Province of China.
