Japanese University graduated from: Kobe University, School of Medicine

Subject of study: Orthopaedic Surgery

Study year: 1994 – 1999

Brief experience in Japan: I studied orthopaedic surgery and clinical genetics. My thesis for PhD was “Genetic causes of bone and cartilage diseases.’ This field of research that time was very new for a young medical graduate from Nepal.
It is my privilege to get opportunity to study in Japan. More than the subject, I learned discipline, working culture and self-pride from Japanese people. I found Japanese are patriotic from the heart and in practice.

Presidency year in JUAAN: 2015 -17 (between Dinesh Bhuju and Manoj Giri)
