- I had the opportunity to learn about radiation, its consequences and medical repercussion. My hospital performs annual check-ups for A-bomb survivors and I believe I am now prepared to deal with these patients and to understand how this event affected the way of life of this population. I also learned about humanity support to these patients and this was equally very impressive for me.

- The knowledge of radiation I learned enriched and made me prepared for the occasion to examine radiation-exposed patients in the future.
The period in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department (of Hiroshima University Hospital) was also quite interesting because many medical approaches are different due to cultural distance between Brazil and Japan.

- I had the opportunity to meet people who are extremely engaged in health care of the radiation-exposed. I was fascinated by researches that are being conducted to determine how radiation affects our health. As an oncologist, patients with cancer diagnosis come to my office on a daily basis. After this training program, I will be able to analyze better a patient’s disease if radiation is a risk factor to be considered.
