The 3rd JrSr International Physician Seminar


The 3rd JrSr International Physician Seminar for Students & Residents

第3回 JrSr 国際教育者による学生・研修医セミナー

THEME:“Japanese medical education; challenge to the USA and to AI in future”.

The unique strengths of this seminar include 1) international passionate clinician-educators living in Japan, 2) small group interactive sessions ( including USMLE mock oral interview), 3) emphasizing basic clinical skills (history and physical) and communication skills, and 4) potentially an excellent step to the US training.

The key for success of this seminar is not JrSr, not teachers but it is yourself. You should and can enjoy the seminar by discussion, communication and participation in the seminar, by teaching and learning each other, and by making many friends. Do not hesitate to speak up, let’s stand up, and participate. It is your seminar for improvement, globalization, prosperity and dream for your future career and your life.

THEME: Simulated Patient Scenarios
FACILITATOR: Dr. Joel Branch
CONTENT: Participants (You!) must race against time to obtain the history and physical examination from the simulated patient (SP) - Dr. Branch - in English! You must use your skills in history taking, physical examination and clinical deduction to ascertain the diagnosis and start life-saving treatments - all within the allotted time. The SP is not going to make it easy for you! Can you get the diagnosis and start the life-saving treatments before the time runs out? Each session will have a different diagnostic challenge!
·Learning colloquial English medical words that Western patients will use and understand.
·Development of effective communication skills with Western patients.
·Understanding that the use of a Review of Systems sheet can speed up the history taking process, especially when the patient does not mention additional symptoms.
·Appreciating how a Western physician thinks in order to make decisions about patient care with few results available. This would apply when patients may be critical, and when emergent treatment is essential.

THEME: Case based presentations and discussion with emphasis on differential diagnosis methodology, pathophysiology, and ethics
FACILITATORS: Drs. George Meyer and Graham Warden
CONTENT: Interactive case presentations involving gastroenterology and radiology.
We hope to be able to help guide interested students and physicians to help them successfully get to the United States!

THEME: Applied Medical Interviewing in English
FACILITATOR: Dr. Carrick Burns
CONTENT: coming soon!

THEME: Essential Apps for your Medical Education – And how to use them!
FACILITATOR: Dr. Ivor Cammack
CONTENT:We will introduce you to some simple apps for your phone or tablet, which you can download and start to use immediately to help you learn more from your patients.
Using a case-based approach, we will use these apps to discover more about your patient, extend your differential diagnosis, understand their condition better, and record notes which you will never lose. This will be an interactive session. Usually during class, it’s rude to use your phone – this time we will encourage it!
Medicine is about lifelong learning, and the sooner you can develop some of these habits the better. With easy access to our phones, we can use these powerful tools to our benefit. The age of AI is here – medical education in Japan may be old fashioned, but you can enter the 21st century on your own, and start making use of the technology available.
