     While the COVID-19 epidemic required the ability to confront infection prevention practices, its education for medical students remained inadequate. Herein, we have developed an infection practice simulation course for medical students, based on the simulation education method. The course is a compulsory part of the medical school curriculum. Features of the course include adoption of small group education by tutorial method, medical interviews of simulated patients, scenario simulation, supervised discussions and presentations between medical students, efficient point learning using worksheets, achievement assessment using OSCE, course direction by an infectious disease specialist, and university-wide educational participation from all clinical department doctors. The course was designed so that students could be guided to think carefully and be aware of their interactions. In addition, it was expected that participation in the course would have a lifelong educational effect on the medical doctors.

     We developed an educational program on cultural competence for psychiatric professionals. Regarding social justice education that critically questions dominant ideologies, we held weekly 30-minute discussion groups with multidisciplinary professionals. Rather than focusing on a particular culture group, we aimed to realize through critical self-reflection, as advocated by Kumagai and Lypson, that “there is a part of the other that I cannot know,” and named this group the “Discussion Group on Otherness.” Using essays on medical culture written by researchers in the medical humanities as our main teaching material, we discussed what is (or should be) the relevant problem. This article discusses the issues that have emerged so far, the responses to these issues, and future developments.

     Coaching is considered a systematised method of training high-performing athletes and musicians and is characterised by the provision of interpersonal support through interactive dialogue towards set goals. The word “coach” can be traced back to 15th century Europe when the town of Kocs in Hungary produced high-quality four-wheeled carriages that were used in many places, and the word “coach” came to mean a carriage. The word coach is also said to have come to be used to refer to the interpersonal support techniques used to transport important people and their belongings to their destinations. Coaching has since been widely adopted in the business world in Europe and the USA and began to spread in Japan in the late 1990s. In the medical world, literature on coaching has increased since around 2000, and coaching is now used in medical communication, hospital management and medical education. In this series of articles, examples of the introduction of coaching into professionalism education will be introduced from two perspectives: coaching for individuals and coaching for medical teams.
