Abstract: The aim of this presentation is to report how medical students can gain positive study interests not only for high-tech medical science but also for health related issues in everyday life. For this purpose, the author switched his educational strategy from lecturing on information to asking students about their unique life experience related to health and disease.This transformation of educational view was obtained during the author's stay in Illinois 1991-1992. After coming back to Japan, the author started various trials to externalize students' hidden concepts and images. In order to reveal the students' unique perspective of health, which is embedded in their everyday life, students were asked to visualize and express their images related to a variety of daily situations. This presentation material is based on the author's lectures at Nagasaki University (from April to July, 1995), and accompanying students' written responses. For the present trials, the author developed various visual frameworks to think, reflect and externalize. As the result, in addition to students' individual unique responses, two different aspects of Japanese medical students were also revealed, such as ‘rather naive and/or immature' aspect and ‘logical and creative’ aspect. These two different aspects are impressive not only for the author but also for students, because in the traditional way of Japanese medical education, students are not permitted to express their personal feelings, and students' unique perspectives are also suppressed. As the result, students do not have enough chances to reflect oneself and interact with other students. However, such lack of inner and/or mutual reflection is not good for sound professional growth. Further encouragement and realization of both of these aspects would help students to attain more balanced emotional growth toward matured medical professionals.
