- I was able to learn details on radiation exposure that I was not familiar with. Though I had had difficulties judging on relationship between radiation and the current symptoms of my patients who are radiation-exposure victims, I can explain them better now.
   I had a very fruitful time. Thank you very much.

- Feeling indirectly the damage caused by the A-bomb through visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and hearing about the radiation exposure damage and the relief activities (systematically conducted by the government) on which I was quite ignorant were good experiences.
  Though I do not have so many opportunities to treat radiation exposed patients, I came to think that we should be careful in our medical treatments that use radiation.
   I appreciated the doctors and researchers who were very kind to us.

-Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be prepared and take measurements against disasters, which may occur at any time, by sharing the practical research on the radiation exposed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
  After returning to Korea I would like to inform about the dangers of radiation and suggest that the clinic department director and the staff should take the appropriate measures.
   I appreciate all the doctors, researchers and staff who made this training course possible and hope this training will be a turning point for me.
