[Initial Greetings]
We established Non-Profit Organization Medical English Learning Supportng Association (NPO-MELSA) in 2014.
The NPO MELSA consists of voluntary members who used to study both medical interpreting and medical tourism. While learning medical English and doing some volunteering, we thought that we would like to unite them together, such as finding venues, providing materials of medical/healthcare knowledge, and supporting circumstances, and learning language (English) together.
@

That was when the idea of the gMELSAh occurred to us. We have decided to initiate an NPO in order to share the opportunity to learn together with professionals and students in the field of medical/healthcare and @@@@welfare, including people in the public.

The NPO MELSA aims to provide the places for learning medical English in ways which will satisfy the various needs of different groups and generations, for example those building a career or up-skilling, those planning to study and/or work abroad, those in continuing education for retired employees etc. From the global perspective, we anticipate considerable public interest in this provision, which will lead to mutual learning and communication with each other, harmonizing with medical/healthcare, people and society, as well as promoting medical globalization.

Could you join us and learn together?
We sincerely look forward to your participation in the special workshop of MELSA.

@Sincerely,
@Atsuko OMORI
@Representative Director

What's MELSA?

MELSA stands for Medical English Learning Support Association.
While trying to address the legal formality required as an NPO, we will try to do our best and share the @@@
opportunity of learning medical English with various proffesionals, such as nurses, other co-medicals and @@
students in the field of medical/healthcare and welfare. MELSA is not only a place to support people who are @learning medical English but also a place for anyone to nurture his/her skill, individuality, and confidence.
MELSA is the global place where only you can make something special. English is our tool for multicultual @@@exchange and/or experience. Could you join us and learn together?
