The Faculty of Medicine of Hokkaido University, cojointly with 10 other universities and institutions in Japan, has signed a Consortium Agreement on radiation medicine education with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, headquartered in Vienna).
The Consortium aims to improve the standard of cancer diagnosis and treatment through the training of specialists in radiology, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy in developing countries and elsewhere.
The consortium itself was launched in 2018 and will be renewed for five years with the signing of this agreement. The Faculty of Medicine of Hokkaido University has been contributing to the educational activities of the IAEA to date; in September 2019, the “Regional Workshop on Clinical Applications of Cardiac Multimodality Imaging in Clinical Based Setting Including PET/CT” was held on the university’s campus. This workshop was attended by 29 participants from Asia and other countries. In addition, several lecturers of HU were dispatched to workshops held at other institutions in Japan.
Based on this agreement, the Faculty of Medicine of Hokkaido University is expected to play an important role in education in the field of radiation medicine in collaboration with other universities and institutes in Japan and the IAEA.
