本学会について

Greeting

Dear Colleagues,

Aloha!
 It is my great honor to host the 36th Congress of the Pan-Pacific Surgical Association, Japan Chapter (PPSA-JP) at the Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach, (formerly the Pacific Beach Hotel) in Honolulu, Hawaii from March 7th to 9th, 2020. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Professor Naoyuki Kohno, the Chairman of PPSA-JP, and board members for giving me such an opportunity, which is more than I deserve.
 PPSA-JP was established by the late Professor Juro Wada in 1984 to provide young surgeons in a wide range of surgical fields the opportunity to present and discuss in English. It is a unique and precious opportunity for them to develop global awareness; indeed, the theme of this meeting is “Surgeons Contributing to Local Medicine with a Global Mind” ~ Glocal Surgeons ~.
 Moreover, I would like to invite professors and students of the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) to give some lectures at this congress. Personally, I was a research fellow at JABSOM (the University of Hawaii Medical School) from the end of 1986 to the beginning of 1988. Thus, Hawaii holds many memories for me. We, at the Kochi Medical School, established an agreement with JABSOM in 2011 promoting the exchange of students and faculty members between both medical schools. And so I firmly believe the 36th Congress will be productive for all participants.
 Hawaii is a paradise of beautiful nature and shopping, along with the warm hospitality of the local people. The welcome party will be at APETITO CRAFT PIZZA & WINE BAR and the farewell party will be at WOLFGANG’S STEAK HOUSE, both of which are located in the center of Waikiki.
 I would like to offer all participants a pleasant and memorable experience in Hawaii, combined with an excellent academic program.

I am looking forward to meeting you all in March, 2020.

Mahalo!

About PPSA-JC

本学会は、外科系若手医師の英語発表の登竜門として、故 和田寿郎先生が発起した歴史ある会で、毎年海外にて開催されています。英語の発表の機会は、近年のグローバル化になくてはならない重要な事項であります。また、本会は外科領域におけるすべての科を対象としており、若手医師の英語による発表の機会であるとともに、科の垣根を越えた知見、情報交換の場にもなっております。実りある学会となりますよう、皆様のご協力の程、どうぞよろしくお願い申し上げます。
