International Exchanges

Our hospital is fortunate to have many international exchanges through veterinary science and medicine. Amongst all, we welcome a senior student (final year of veterinary school) from the Veterinary College of Colorado State University where our hospital director emeritus, Dr. Gen Kato, for a 4 weeks internship program each year. We learn and gain many things through their visits, which are beneficial to all of our staff. We also spent time together outside the hospital as much as possible, going to hot springs, to sightsee or introducing them to the Japanese cuisine.
We earn continuous education from seminars and meetings held in Japan, and also from visits to large meeting such as AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) annual meeting, IVECS (International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society), ACVS (American College of Veterinary Surgery) and ACVIM (American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine) in USA. Our veterinary nurses as well as veterinarians attend the Hawaii Veterinary Medical Association meeting each fall and gain valuable experiences from interactions with many veterinary specialists from the US mainland and Hawaii.
Our director emeritus, Dr. Kato frequently visits the US veterinary colleges especially Colorado State University after these meetings to lecture himself. Also, many of the speakers invited to speak in Japan are his old friends, and at visits to our hospital after their lectures, we are granted the opportunity to personally communicate with them.
