OUR MONTH AT HYOGO COLLEGE OF MEDICINE, JAPAN

● Andrea Spinčić(University of Rijeka)

01.jpgWhen I applied for this student exchange program, I was hoping to see and learn many new things, experience some cultural and educational differences, meet new people while living in a completely different environment, on the other part of the world. And I am very pleased to say that I got all that.

I had an opportunity to have my practice at two departments, Pediatrics and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. First two weeks at Hyogo College of Medicine I spent with a wonderful team of doctors at the Pediatrics department who were kindly passing their knowledge to me, especially of rare diseases that I have never had chance to see before. Therefore, I am very thankful for all that. For the last two weeks I was experiencing physical medicine and rehabilitation's many fields of work. As a part of my practice I also had an opportunity to visit three other hospitals in the area, Kansai Rehabilitation Hospital, Nishinomiya Kyoritsu Rehabilitation Hospital and Hatanaka Orthopedics Clinic, which I found very interesting and useful.

Fascinating night view of Osaka and bright lights of Dotonbori District, graceful temples of Kyoto, breathtaking view on a beautiful city of Kobe from Rokko Mountain, peacefulness of Hiroshima's Memorial Park, wild deer walking around freely in Nara, magnificent Himeji Castle, impressive buildings and stunning parks in Tokyo are just some of the things that will undoubtedly stay forever in my memory. Of course, when talking about experiencing Japan, I must not forget Japanese food. It was something totally different from what we used to have, but trying new tastes was definitely challenging. Also worth mentioning are the Japanese people. Their kindness and politeness could overcome any language barrier.

All in all, a month spent in Japan was absolutely the best possible way of ending my six year medical education as also my college life. Hopefully someday I will go to your country again and visit places I didn't have time to see!
