I have worked as a staff nurse in medical wards, ICUs, home visit agency, and the health center of OIST. I entered this master degree program in Apr. 2020.
In the first year of my master's degree, I learned through attending classes and reading various journals that there are talented people working within Japan and abroad. When I work as a nurse, I focus mainly on the patients in front of me, but I have learned that it is also important to consider the regional, ethnic, and social background to which the patients belong. There are various health disparities not only in the world but also in Japan. I would like to improve my skills so that I can deliver useful information and help individuals to choose the option that they think is best for them. In order to do so, I need to study more. I welcome you to join our Global Health Department!

I have worked for Malawi ministry of health at Mzuzu Central Hospital as a Laboratory Technologist as the head of the department for Molecular laboratory for 12 years. In 2019, I started work at Partners in Hope as HIV/AIDS Testing and Linkage Services as a program coordinator. My main responsibilities were; Program planning, monitoring and evaluation of key program indicators and HIV testing services supply chain management,
During my work, I have gained tremendous skills in project cycle management, leadership, supervision and mentorship.
Malawi and its neighbouring countries are still being menaced by infectious diseases, largely due to poor sanitation; refuse, sewage and drainage systems, poor food and personal hygiene and less vibrant health promotion activities. I believe that by studying at the University of the Ryukyus, I will not only gain knowledge and skills in global health management, but I will also be exposed to a world-class scientist in the field of research and healthcare.

I worked as an occupational therapist. I worked as a JICA volunteer in Thailand. After that, I worked at welfare center and national hospital.
In April 2019, I entered Ryukyu university as a Master course student.
When I graduated from university, I wanted to go on to graduate school. After I came back from Thailand, I returned to work. However, my interest in going to graduate school became stronger. So I came to Okinawa to study full-time. I would like to make the most of what I've learned here.

I have a dual education degree in Clinical Nursing and Clinical Medicine in China.
I received a clinical internship at Urumqi Children's Hospital.
After graduating from a Clinical Medicine University in China, I came to the University of Ryukyus to accept a master's degree.
During the University of the Ryukyus, I accepted an internship project for lifestyle diseases by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
After graduating with a master's degree, I will return to China to continue to complete and obtain my Physician License.
In the future, I hope to use my clinical medicine knowledge from an international perspective.

I worked as a nurse and midwife. I was also a JICA volunteer and went to Senegal. After that, I worked as a midwife again.
In April 2018, I entered Ryukyu university as a Master course student.
I joined this department to solve my question from my experience.
I was in Senegal for two years and when I worked with my co-workers, I couldn't find out what we could do together.
Maybe my idea and their plans didn't match. Because of this, I want to know what I can do and how I can do it in these two years,
so I can apply it in the future. Here, the lessons and communication with English are tough for me, and it feels like my Senegal days for me.
If... you are interested in glabal and of course local health, I want you to join us!
