The Virtual Academic Mobility: Clinico-Pathological Conference for students with the theme “A man in his 70s with obstructive jaundice”

The Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Thailand, and Kansai Medical University, Japan, collaborated in organizing a special session on the Virtual Academic Mobility titled Clinico-Pathological Conference for students, under the theme “A man in his 70s with obstructive jaundice”, on June 11, 2021, via the ZOOM online platform. On this occasion, Prof. Toshimasa Nishiyama, Vice President of Center for International Exchange, presided over the opening remark of the event.
This virtual event included several sessions under the theme of “A man in his 70s with obstructive jaundice”. After the introduction session by Dr. Chisato Ohe, Ms. Nao Kamiya (4th-year student from KMU) provided the Case presentation following with the sharing of “Differential diagnosis” by medical students; both Thai and Japanese. There are also the “Expert comments” presented by Dr. Tsukasa Ikeura and Dr. Yumiko Kono; both from KMU. The lectures were summarized by Dr. Chisato Ohe with her presentation on Pathological presentation & summary. All participants listened attentively to the presentations and both sides eager to exchange their knowledge and viewpoint towards the subject of the activity. We also would like to take this opportunity to appreciate Dr. Watoo Vassanasiri, medical Lecturer from Ramathibodi’s Department of surgery, for her kind advice on the Thai student’s presentation this time.
The event made a beautiful success with 49 participants from Ramathibodi and 37 participants from KMU while it aims to encourage further academic exchange between the Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, and KMU, which has established their official collaboration since October 201
