-I received a lot of information that normally wouldn’t have accessed.

(I would like to put the newly acquired knowledge to)

Clinical Practice: Better approach to rare cases of radiation lesions/pathologies in our country

Educational Purposes: Pass on acquired knowledge to other medical colleagues and residents who may never have any experience in this field.


-The week in the Dermatology Department or others specialties departments is very important to show us the Medicine in Japan.

The program is very embracing and very interesting.

I think 3 weeks is a good time to the training. The way of the program, divided in three weeks is ideal.


-My training in the (gynecology) area of Robotic surgery was very special, because it is not yet in the routine of standardized surgery in Japan. So I attended urological surgery like prostate cancer and kidney cancer performed by the Department of Urology. Even so, it was very helpful to know the functioning of the department’s routine and therapies.
