My name is Fadyl, one of the foreign students who study at Tokushima University. I am from Indonesia and just came to Japan in April 2018. I want to share regarding the academic activities as the graduate student in Oral Sciences of Tokushima University. The major which I have been deeply learning is Prosthodontics Department. These have two departments of prosthodontics which one is ichi-hotetsu, means first prosthodontics with the field in prosthodontics and oral rehabilitation, and the other is ni-hotetsu, means second prosthodontics scoped in stomatognathic function and oral reconstruction. Additionally, the differences between both departments are ichi-hotetsu focused on the removable denture and ni-hotetsu read up fixed denture. The next question, what is prosthodontics department located me? I was placed in ichi-hotetsu, first prosthodontics. At the first semester, I commenced for learning basic research such as cell culture, western blot, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), flow cytometry, etc. Furthermore, I tried examination of histology and immunochemistry tissue after taking out DC cells from bone marrow of mice, in vivo study. My topic research field on immunology and metal allergy, thus I have to proficiency and scrutiny in the basic research. The others activity, campus is facilitated by lecture in class and e-learning, which are so interesting and updated. Furthermore, I took the Japanese language class, even if not obligatory, yet I think is really useful for my daily life to understand and communicate well in the Japanese language. Every month, we have a schedule to journal club and continue to discuss our progress report of the research with our supervisor, and also conduct to evaluate meeting about our research with Professor, based on the research topic. Every week, we hold the meeting for all of the members in our department that presenter takes a turn among of us. On the other hand, graduate students have the duty in the hospital to treat patients. But, for the foreign student, we don’t have the dentist license in here, so we just obligate become the assistant. The frequency to work in the hospital depends on the department, but in here at least twice a week. Moreover, sometimes the graduate school of oral sciences invites abroad speaker or guest speaker, who has a specialty in the particular research, therefore we can follow the class to get more insight about the novelty knowledge. In this time, I just emphasize about the internal research activities as graduate student in Tokushima university, someday I will continue my story concerning outside activities in the academic. Thank you.
