Keio Medical Students Stepping Out Into the World (Part 2)

Keio Global examines some of the various ways that Keio medical students are going around the globe. This edition, we look at two summer schools that Keio students take part in.

The Summer Research School is a 3-week summer school for PhD candidates from four of the world's most prestigious medical schools in Europe and Asia.

The Exeter College Medical Ethics Summer School is a program held at Oxford University's Exeter College for medical students to discuss and argue the most difficult issues in medicine.
