About the JCMT

The basic goals of the JCMT Project are to contribute to the international community and promote international friendship by receiving doctors from the developing nations for training in Japan, based on the guiding philosophy of creating ambience for “heart to heart personal exchanges” between Japan and the nations of Southeast Asia. The program invites doctors from the developing countries and provides training in an advanced medical environment in Japan, with the aim of improving experts of medical care in the developing nations.

The JCMT also provides a comfortable living environment and other necessary support for its Fellows while they are in Japan, as well as ample opportunities to gain a better understanding of Japanese society and Japanese culture and values. These “extra-curricular” activities help to build close bonds of friendship between the invited fellows, and also contribute to improving friendship between Japan and the developing nations.

Overview of the JCMT Training Program

The aims of the JCMT Project are to improve the level of clinical medical expertise in the nations of Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe, and to promote friendship and goodwill between Japan and those nations, by providing medical training to senior/promising doctors from those nations in Japan.

Medical Training Program

[1] Regular Session Course The JCMT invites outstanding doctors from national universities and other core public medical institutions in the Southeast Asian and Eastern European countries to Japan, and provides medical expert training, centering on advanced medical technology, for a period of approximately 2 months. The results of this training contribute to improving the level of medical technology in the Fellowsユ home countries.
[2] Refresher Course Doctors who have already participated in the Basic Training Program are invited back to Japan for a short-term training course of about 2 weeksユ duration, with the aim of further improving the effectiveness of their original training skills.
[3] Follow-up Training Program Japanese doctors who are responsible for practical guidance in the training program are dispatched to the JCMT’s counterpart countries, where they provide follow-up medical training in various forms, including performing operations as demonstration, thus giving guidance to doctors in a “hands-on” environment, and presenting lectures. Many other local doctors are also able to participate and take advantage of this opportunity, enabling wide dissemination of the skilled training in various subspecialties.

Cultural Program

A second important purpose of the JCMT Program is to encourage a better understanding of Japanese values and create friendly ties with this country to a larger number of fellows. In addition to the 3 medical training programs described above, the JCMT also conducts cultural programs that enable the visiting fellows to understand and experience modern Japanese society, the country’s history, heritage and culture, and the Japanese people.

Participation in the JCMT Training Program is limited to doctors recommended by designated hospitals in mainly certain countries of Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe.
