First of all, I would like to thank HICARE for giving this opportunity. And I hope that HICARE will continue this training. At first, I was worried about my training program, but now, I am very comfortable due to HICARE's careful concern. A lot of people helped me and show kindness. I learned a lot of things in Hiroshima University Hospital, Hiroshima University Research Institute for Radiation Biology and Medicine, and Radiation Effects Research Foundation. I would like to apply the experiences to my medical field. 

Medical Activities in Korea:

As a medical doctor and a teacher, I examine patients and teach medical students. Especially, I am a nuclear medicine doctor, and I do image analysis and consultation. My specialty is neurology and oncology. I analyze brain data, sometimes using statistical method, and explain the result of PET examination to patient.
