Graduate School of Medicine, Division of Health Sciences/Faculty of Medicine, School of Allied Health Sciences promote international collaborative research and academic exchange.
We have several international collaborative research projects. The new project funded by the Japan Society for Promotion of Science will examine the differences in the prevalence of behavioural psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD), such as wandering among nine study sites. The project will further explore factors associated with BPSD. Universities from China, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Japan will participate in this project. Ongoing student/faculty exchange programs are University of Oulu, Finland, Indiana University, USA, and Ewha Womans University, Korea. New exchange programs are Tzu chii College of Technology and Taipei Medical University, Taiwan and Shanghai Ligong Daxue, China.
