9th May 2016
Accompanied Clare Marx President Royal College of Surgeons of England and Council members on the President’s Triennial Visit overseas May 2016 – on this occasion visiting the Japanese Surgical Society at their Tokyo meeting. Fascinating to hear about the similarities and differences in their training programmes and to hear the presentations of the British and Japanese trainees research projects. Reception held at the impressive British Ambassadors residence close by the Imperial Palace. Visited Hiroshima and its museum highlighting the terrible injuries inflicted by the nuclear bomb.
