about us

APSARA is an acronym for the Asian Pacific Society of Hospital General Medicine, which was founded by three physicians, Drs. Hayashi, Takahashi, and Yamada to provide Japanese high-quality medical education and hospital general medicine to underpopulated areas in Asian countries.

It's also a place where participants can shape what they want to do. We hope that many of you will join us and help us to live our "dream".

Many young doctors, including medical students, junior and senior residents, have already participated in the activities and have started to run towards the realization of various ideas. In addition to physicians, we also invite co-medicals and IT experts to participate in our activities to broaden the scope of our activities.

What is needed is not necessarily past achievements or a high level of medical knowledge, but enthusiasm. You can learn and achieve something through APSARA.

APSARA is supported by the enthusiasm of the participants.
