- Through the training, I could directly learn about the details of damage caused by A-bomb, it's after effects and support measures for the survivors, which made me aware that this horrible incident must not happen again. This training was so good that it gave rise to a sense of responsibility I have as a member of radiation emergency medical team.  


- It was good that I could listen to an A-bomb survivor and a doctor talk about how they reacted the situations and what problems happened in the case of A-bombs or Fukushima nuclear accident whose descriptions were vivid based on their actual experiences. I will use of the knowledge for the educations of disaster prevention and also training for specialized doctor in our hospital. Also I would like to reevaluate our manual to improve.


- Hiroshima city is so modern and beautiful that I could hardly imagine it was actually damaged by Atomic-bomb. I admire its efforts to preserve the documents and the remains related to A-bomb damages in the right way and to hand them down to the next generation in order to prevent people from forgetting the pain in the past.


- I often give lectures on radiation in Korea. To the attendees in my lectures, I will convey the fact that there have been immeasurable suffers of general citizen regarding the damage cause by the atomic bombs both in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Actually I had learned about LSS (life span study) reported by RERF through the related books and papers and had some knowledge, through the training, however, I leaned much more than those about sad historical fact which I would never gain from documents.

I will share those knowledge with many people in Korea.


- I deepened my understanding on management and survey after the damaged caused by Atomic bombings.
