Medical Women Symposium was held.


On January 27th, 2012 the Medical Women Symposium “Female Doctors’ Career Opportunities Learned from Role Models” was held.


Prof. Futaba Kazama, Chief of the Division, gave a presentation introducing some of our role models.


Work-life balance is an issue in medicine just as in other workplaces
and the importance of improving working environments was pointed out so that female medical staff members including doctors can smoothly return to work after a certain period of a maternity leave.

One of the male doctors mentioned that
many challenges women faced were things that he had never imagined.
