Two medical schools from China and Japan renewed their cooperation Aug 2, signing educational and short-term student exchange agreements.

The delegation from Japan's Kuretake College of Medical Arts and Sciences reached an agreement with its Chinese counterpart, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (SHUTCM), during a visit to its campus earlier this month.

The two schools have maintained cooperation and exchanges for 30 years.

The Japanese delegation's visit also marked the opening of two international education centers, one each at the Chinese and Japanese campuses, to commemorate their long-term relationship.

With the first group of SHUTCM students beginning their study of Japanese traditional medical applications at Kuretake, Hu Hongyi, SHUTCM vice-president, expressed his hope for their futures and proposed further sharing of their common aim of maintaining their respective traditional medical sciences.

Kuretake president, Sakamoto Ayumi, expressed his desire to see both schools expand their cooperation beyond student exchanges.
