Japan is a quixotic blend of stylised ritual, gracious tradition and hyper modernity. It is unique in its food, culture, dress and ceremonies, and its singular history means that it has had to adjust to the impact of one of modern technology's most cataclysmic inventions - the effects of which still resonate today.
This uniquely curated tour provides deep insight into Japan’s medicine, healthcare and culture. Experience different facets of this exceptional country, with a wide range of professional visits. An examination of healthcare also gives excellent insight into society, such as Japanese longevity as a result of diet and lifestyle, and elderly health initiatives. Participants will learn about the very different challenges faced by the extremely urban sections of Japanese society and those in remote rural areas, as well as about medical education and training.
