The training system of HICARE was well arranged. The people associated with me during my stay in Hiroshima were all kind to me and provided me with useful information.
I realized that they had made a considerable effort to treat radiation-exposed patients and deliver the risk of atomic bombs to people throughout the world. Since research regarding radiation exposure has been well established, I could easily learn the risk of radiation from it. I won't forget what I have leaned and seen. I thank HICARE for providing me with the opportunity to learn about medicine in Hiroshima.
