-The training was greater than I had expected. It is impressive that people in Japan overcame the disaster and have made utmost efforts to care the victims to their last, which made me realize the potential of Japan. Their attitudes toward international cooperation by disseminating the expertise that they have gained from the experiences and the various researches will be a good example for other countries.

-At the time of inspection of radiation-exposed people, I will be more careful about the results with meticulously viewing of the interview sheet as well as considering their life customs.  I will also utilize the knowledge I gained through the training for the consultation with A-bomb survivors.

-Through this training, I could know exactly what agony the Atomic bomb imposed on people as well as the  extent of its damage and  what support the survivors have needed.  I also learned about the current support and their background.

After going back home, I will tell people what kind of disaster nuclear weapons will bring on humans and the environment. Korea has nuclear power plants, too, and has the possibility to face disasters relating to radiation like Japan.  I want to be helpful in the preparation for caring radiation exposed (and possibly exposed) people as well as in establishing a medical care system that can work effectively in the case of possible another.
