On 20 Dec 2011It was a great honour to be selected as the recipient of the 2011 ESCP Japan Travelling Fellow. This allowed me to spend a week at the world renowned National Cancer Centre (NCC) in Tokyo before attending the 66th Japan Society of Coloproctology (JSCP) meeting in Tokyo. During my research years in London, I had read many high quality scientific journals from Japan and had hoped that one day I would be able to visit and observe the Japanese health system.
On 14 Dec 2011It was a great honour in my life to have a chance to attend this ESCP meeting in Copenhagen. I would like to represent my sincere gratitude to Prof. O’Connell. He instructed me to make a proper rotation in EU area. Firstly I visited St. Marks Hospital in London. Prof. Phillips and Dr Saunders gave me a precious opportunity looking at operation and endoscopy. At the ESCP meeting Prof. O’Connell encouraged me with his enthusiasm after I expressed Japanese gratitude to all of the people in the European society in terms of the earthquake tragedy on March 11.
