The Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences and Biotechnology conducts a Student/Faculty Exchange Program with Kitasato University in Sagamihara-shi, Japan. Each year, two or three Japanese Laboratory Science students visit our Department for three weeks, usually during March. In May-June, two or three of our students visit Kitasato University. Thomas Jefferson University students attend classes at Kitasato University, sight-see and enjoy a "total immersion" in Japanese customs and culture.

Participation in the Exchange Program is competitive. Eligibility is based on:

  • Academic performance
  • Ability to represent our University 
  • Potential to have meaningful learning and social experiences

Students may apply for funding to support their trip through the University's Foerderer Scholarships for International Study.
