Received the certificate of completion from Dr. Shunichi Kaseda (second from the right), Vice President of Hiroshima Red Cross Hospital & Atomic-bomb Survivors Hospital
- I have treated A-bomb survivors who visited me as out-patients without recognizing what they wanted and needed. Because I can now understand their mental state, I will be able to give more meticulous medical treatment from now on.
- I have gained the systematic knowledge which I needed to understand the agony of A-Bomb survivors I could never have experienced and because of this can now help them.
- I could hear about the first-aid activities at the time of complex disaster from Dr. Hirohashi, at the Advanced Emergency and Critical Care Center of Hiroshima University Hospital, which was the best experience for me.
As a doctor, I doubt if I could have been well-prepared enough for emergencies. Since I could gain useful knowledge and points through this training, I will be able to apply it in a case of emergency without missing any important points.
- With regards the curriculum - it would have been better for me if the level of content in clinical and laboratory study would have been higher. I would like to take further lectures in more detail in the discipline of molecular genetics and clinical study.
