Student Exchange Program
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 Lab 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.
