UI Hospitals And Clinics To Host Japanese Hospital Leaders

A group of nine physician-executives from Japan will attend a special health care administration seminar the week of June 6-10 at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City.

The Japanese delegation will receive a series of presentations and tours during their stay. UI Hospitals and Clinics leaders will instruct the group on topics such as the overall U.S. health care system, health care financing, risk management and quality initiatives. The seminar participants will visit numerous areas of UI Hospitals and Clinics, including the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at the UI, the Center of Excellence in Image Guided Radiation Therapy, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and operating rooms.

Ken Kimura, M.D., a UI professor emeritus of surgery now living in Hawaii, helped organize the seminar. Attendees include hospital CEOs, hospital directors and vice-hospital directors. Translators will be available throughout the program to assist the visitors.
