OVERVIEW
Shimane university hospital is located in Izumo city, which is the second largest city in Shimane prefecture. It takes about 5minites to drive from Izumo-shi station to the hospital. Shimane is a rural area and you can enjoy sceneries of rice fields, mountains, rivers and oceans. There’re some supermarkets, drug stores and convenience stores near the hospital. And, people are very kind!
UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS

Izumo campus was originally a medical school called Shimane medical university before integrated with Shimane university, so this school has only two courses (to be a doctor or nurse). You may think that the university itself is very small. However, new hospital ward was opened four years ago and it has a lot of latest medical devices. Shimane university gives priority to community healthcare and has affiliate hospitals all over Shimane.

RESEARCH PROJECTS AND LABS

BOARDING

We will provide a exchange student with 10,000 yen to buy his/her own lunch. You can have lunch in each day in the cafeteria “Lapan” on 2F in the hospital. Other choices are to go to the student cafeteria on the ground floor of ‘’Daigaku kaikan’’, to buy lunch at LAWSON on the ground floor of the hospital.

LODGING

We have a dormitory for exchange students. It’s located within the grounds that Shimane university and hospital are standing on. The first floor is used as a kindergarten and your room is on the second floor. There’s a bed, a desk and a bathroom in the room. You’ll have a free disposable tooth brush and a yukata(light cotton kimono)-type housedress. Sweepers come every day and clean the room. You can use wash machine and laundry drier in public space for free. Unfortunately, wi-fi is not installed in the dormitory. If you need it, please go to the school lounge, where you can use it for free.

TRANSPORTATION

From Tokyo, you have three choices – Domestic fright or bullet train(`Shinkansen`) and trains
We recommend that you get an airplane from Haneda to Izumo because it’s the easiest and fastest way. It takes about one and a half hours and costs less than \20,000. And what’s more, you can book in advance. If you want to enjoy sceneries from the window, you can come by bullet train(`Shinkansen`) and trains. Get on a shinkansen from Tokyo station. Change trains at Okayama station and then take a train Yakumo. It takes about 7 hours and conts about \20,000.
We arrange to pick you up at Izumo airport or Izumo-shi station. Please give your CP detail informtion about your arrival.

SOCIAL PROGRAM

The best way to enrich your exchange is, “Study hard, Play harder.”
Your CP or any of our school members organize socializing parties, e.g. welcome/farewell party, National food party, city tours. He/She also helps you if you have other ideas. If you have anything you want to do, let us know and we will help you.
