「One Year After COVID-19 Declared as Pandemic – Newly Enrolled Student Point of View」 Hello everyone. My Name is Adit, a first-year graduate student in Prosthodontics and Oral Rehabilitation Department which enrolled during COVID-19 pandemic starting from Autumn 2020. I would like to share my experience on enrolling my Doctoral study in Tokushima University during this pandemic. After going through this pandemic for over than one year, what do you think about it? What’s the difference in our daily life? I would like to share my experience as an International student that enrolled during this pandemic. I supposed to enrol my study in Tokushima University from April 2020. At that time, just a week before my departure to Japan, my VISA becomes invalid, therefore my flight was cancelled due to the Japan’s travel restriction measures on COVID-19 prevention, until undecided time. Every month, I must call Japan’s Consulate General Office in my country to make sure when it’s possible to go to Japan. Finally, the long wait is over. I got informed that I can start my study in October 2020. However, there are some additional documents and examination such as Real-Time PCR test. My arrival to Japan was at the end of October, and I had to follow 2 weeks quarantine measure in a hotel near Narita International Airport. Therefore, I came to Tokushima in the middle of November, which is later around more than 1 month than the scheduled enrolment period. Therefore, I could not attend some classes, but fortunately there was one on demand online class that I can take at that time. As a first-year Doctoral student, besides performing research, I also joined Intensive Japanese Course provided by Tokushima University to learn Japanese Language for my daily life. This course method was also affected by the pandemic. Instead of performing face-to-face class daily, there was only 2 times offline classes every week, and the rest was performed online. Regarding to language learning, the interactions in face-to-face conversation, hiragana/katakana/kanji writing evaluation is better compared to online. Moreover, there are also some cultural activities that usually provided in this class which being cancelled due to pandemic. In my opinion, although this pandemic has made undesirable experience in our life, sometimes it also leads to some positive behaviours too. For example, in a health perspective, a lot of people starts to be aware about the importance of hand hygiene, maintaining healthy state by performing exercise and nutrition selection to maintain immune system, and so on. In terms of working method, some places which previously doesn’t familiar with digital technologies, started to adapt with this condition in terms of online meeting, classes, and other systems. Currently, many countries had been started the vaccination on COVID-19, including Japan. I hope this pandemic will be over soon so that we can do some activities as we supposed to do back then.

3月8日（金）に市川が理事長を務める（公社）日本補綴歯科学会が、報道関係、歯科関連会社様に対して報道発表を行いました。学会事務局で行われましたが、多くの報道関係者にご来場頂き、狭い事務局はすし詰め状態でした。「健康な食事・食環境」コンソーシアムへの参加、学生コンペティションの実施、認定医、修練医制度の導入、オフィシャルジャーナル“Journal of Prosthodontic Research”等について発表しました。理事長はこの日のために準備した500枚のフライヤーを徳島から運び、事務局に到着したときには疲労困憊していたようです（笑）。ご参加頂いた報道関係、歯科関連会社様には厚く御礼申し上げます。
Inbound Exchange Student Program Tokushima University
Prof. Tetsuo Ichikawa was giving a lecture about Prosthodontics and Oral Rehabilitation on November 16th (Friday). The topic was very interesting that was about the past, present and future of prosthodontics development. The students are from Indonesian who were attending inbound exchange student program at Tokushima University. They are undergraduate students from Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta University and Sultan Agung University. This program had been held for around 3 weeks. It was not only sharing about academic activity but also culture between Indonesia-Japan. Hopefully, they were really enjoying this program!
