Medical doctors actively participate in academic meetings and study intensively to achieve self-improvement in medical science and practice and thereby develop possibilities for future career success. It is important and valuable experience to learn techniques for questions and answers and discussions at academic meetings and to interact with people at social gatherings, along with reading academic books and journals. Participation or making academic presentations at academic societies is indispensable to becoming a specialist. Establishment of daycare nursery centers in academic meetings has been proposed as one of the positive actions to improve the environment to enable female doctors to continue to work actively. Here, we present information useful for the organizers of academic meetings at the time of setting up daycare nursery centers. The use of daycare centers differs depending on the academic society and is affected by factors such as whether the number of uses is small or conversely waiting for cancellation; the cost burden also varies. We find good examples of safety management, including cooperation with neighboring doctors. As the number of female doctors and the demand for academic daycare centers will increase, each academic society must secure nursery teachers, a place, and a budget to establish daycare nursery centers.
