- I will explain about the knowledge gained through the training course to the Emergency Clinical Team members (Radiation Emergency Clinical Center) in our hospital. I will also utilize the provided lecture materials by sharing them for the indirect education of those who didn't participate in this training.


- Since Korea hasn't had actual radiation disasters, we have learned it only through theories and trainings. On the other hand, this training course in Hiroshima has an education program consistently based on the actual experiences, which enables participants to understand the whole process from the initial responses to the following managements.


- A large portion of my job consists of telephone consultations for citizens who are concerned about radiation. Making use of the firsthand knowledges that I saw and learned in Hiroshima, I believe that I can explain them in the better manner to understand easily and clearly than before.
