Welcome to the New Year 2015 Keio Global e-newsletter!
This edition features: a special video message from President Seike, Part 2 of Keio Medical Students Stepping Out Into the World, and the new Young Leaders Program at the University of Sydney.
As we start a new year, President Atsushi Seike emphasizes Keio's determination for further internationalization through new initiatives and university reform plans under the Top Global University Project in order to tackle emergent issues and challenges our global society faces.
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.

This is a new short program for Keio students beginning in February 2015 to learn about business management and intercultural communication at the University of Sydney, one of Keio’s longstanding international partners. Keio Global talked to program coordinator Ms. Rebecca Whitcomb about some of the features and objectives of this diverse short program.
On December 8, 2014, Vice-President Kokuryo hosted the Year-end Reception at Mita Campus for international faculty members, visiting scholars, and international students.
