Warmest greetings from the University of Michigan. Iwata General Hospital and the University of Michigan currently collaborate on the Shizuoka Family Medicine Training Grant to establish Family Medicine in Shizuoka, Japan. On my regular visits to the Iwata General Hospital, I am always impressed by the enthusiasm and high quality of the residents. I encourage you to learn more about the Iwata General Hospital Program and I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised. I have lectured in many community and university hospitals in throughout Japan. Based on my observations, Iwata General Hospital and the Shizuoka Family Medicine Training Program are the top! I hope to meet you someday in Iwata!
