Annual Healthcare Seminar History

A key feature in our program is the yearly Healthcare Seminar that takes place during the term. For the past three decades, seminars have taken place in locations both inside and outside of Tokyo. These programs feature in-depth lectures by guest speakers to provide a closer look at critical subjects that cannot be as thoroughly examined at our luncheon meetings. Simultaneous translation is provided as necessary at these meetings. At such seminars, our members have been able to witness the birth of new initiatives and technologies that would impact the industry well before they became universal practices, such as regulatory harmonization, the world wide web in medical communication and education, electronic territory management, the emerging role of pharmacoeconomics, biotechnology, and many other topics as shown below.
