2017/02/06 - 2017/02/17 Okayama university
1. How would you apply the knowledge & skills that you have learned throughout this course for your future?
In this program, I have experienced Japanese culture and architectures but also learned about many pharmaceutical researches that Japanese professors do. But especially, I was impressed that Japan preserves traditional houses and cultures. In Seoul we could only see the tall modern building everywhere but in Okayama, Every shops, houses and restaurants has its own Japanese style so we can enjoy the traditional japan styles every time. So I’ll try to Preserve traditional Korean things as possible as I can in the future so our future generations could feel the beautiful Korea traditional cultures and architecture.
2. Is there anything that may change your view towards Japan – Korea relationships after spending some time in Okayama University?
First of all, Every Japanese that we met was really kind and gentle. So we could easily get along with Japanese friends and professors and had a really good time at Okayama University. Also I was impressed by the well preserved Japanese culture and architecture as I mentioned before. So I felt there are lots of thing that we could learn from Japanese people and culture. Every time in japan was good experience to me, so other people who visit the Okayama University will enjoy the Japan too.
3. Please give us some programs in this course that you have enjoyed?
I especially enjoyed the “Hospital Operation & Patient’s room and Pharmacy Division tour” at Okayama university Hospital. Because we don’t have a chance to experience a simulator, tour in patient’s room as a Korea pharmaceutical student. Also I was impressed by the cooperation with pharmacists and doctors at Hospital. Japanese pharmacists at hospital work closely with doctors and come round to see patient together. but that is almost impossible in Korea. Because pharmacists don’t have much right to speak up at hospital.
I want to be a hospital pharmacist and see patients closely at patient’s room. Not only fill a prescription but also communicate with patients and doctors. So experiencing a pharmacist role in Japanese hospital was a special time for me.
