On August 27, a delegation from the Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences, led by its president, Jadamba Tsolmon, visited Tohoku University and met with the Executive Vice President for International Relations, Toshiya Ueki.
Established in 1942, the Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences has grown rapidly since its inception. The University has also received support from Japan in the form of both equipment and specialist knowledge. As Mongolia's leading medical institute, its graduates represent more than 90% of the country's medical personnel. In January 2015, it concluded an academic exchange agreement with Tohoku University's Faculty of Dentistry and the Graduate School of Dentistry.
In addition to visiting the Graduate School of Dentistry, the group was also introduced to the Graduate School of Medicine, Tohoku University Hospital, and the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering. Further exchanges across a wider range of medical fields are expected in the future.
