- I could learn the historical background of Atomic bombing of Hiroshima, the scale of the damages, the experiences on medical care for A-bomb survivors and the results of researches on radiation injuries, which helped me understand what happened. From the experts in a variety of fields, I could also get detailed information about what kind of researches are going on and what supports and treatments A-bomb survivors currently receive.


 - I will help Korean A-bomb survivors among my patients to make their rest of lives better in future, by understanding their feelings as well as understanding their mental/physical and psychological anguish in their actual lives.
