- Create a network of motivated medical students and teachers
The online clinical case discussion was a part of the TEI project and this program was initiated by Nagoya University in 2020. The purpose of this program is to give medical students from GAME partner universities the opportunities to meet and exchange experiences through virtual platform. During the discussion, students shared the management protocols in their own countries or cities in dealing with different clinical cases.
As part of the TEI project, an online clinical case discussion series of events was initiated by Nagoya University in November and December 2020 (held on 3 & 17 November 2020 and 1 & 15 December 2020). Apart from Nagoya University, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and Korea University also participated in the organization of the programme which offered to students from GAME partner universities in Korea, Nagoya, Hong Kong and Germany.

16 students from member universities of GAME (including 2 CUHK students) joined the first Transnational Educational Initiative (TEI) summer camp hosted by Nagoya University in the summer of 2019. The theme of this summer camp was “Medical Professionalism in Disaster Conditions”. Through the sharing of experienced physicians who worked in the field during past disaster, our students learned about disaster cycle which consists of providing medically related disaster preparations, planning, response and recovery leadership.
