After conducting this tour for more than fifteen years, we have learned more precisely what to offer our participants so that they will have the richest possible experience. From the very beginning of the tour to the very end, attention has been paid to even the smallest details.

From Shashimi to Case Studies

We have made every attempt to customize the experience for each visitor to assure their optimum experience. Managers in the participating healthcare organizations have prepared an excellent learning opportunity for the guests this year, and one of the presentations will include a case study. One of the highlights of the tour will be a discussion about best practices and other learning experienced gained during the week. This real life experience will provide a very rich learning experience. The managers look forward to learning from the experience, too; opportunities for both Japanese and Americans to learn from each other will abound.

The Topics That Will Be Examined in the June 2013 Tour:

  • Interdisciplinary Teams
  • Short-term and Long-term Healthcare
  • Stroke Rehabilitative Care
  • Hospice Care
  • Physical Therapy
  • Cancer Center
  • Pharmacology

The Japanese professionals will have an opportunity to observe American culture in a very comfortable framework of personal attention. The U.S. host is once again looking forward to opening up his home to offer the participants a full course dinner, including Ahi Tuna shashimi for an appetizer – it is a very special ritual, a part of the cultural exchange of the whole experience. He has built a personal friendship with many of the frequent participants and supporters of the tour and is looking quite forward to the dinner.

The mix of cultural engagement with professional development is a comfortable combination, and the relaxed atmosphere at Baldwin Wallace University on the last day of the tour offers an opportunity to discuss new ideas and new learning experiences.
