1. How would you apply the knowledge & skills that you have learned throughout this course for your future?
As I am a student in a school of pharmacy, I expect to become a pharmaceutical scientist. Then the required
properties would be the expertise in the major and the basic humanism as the drugs and treatments are ultimately for the human.
From the course, I had many classes that provided lots of professional knowledges and some of that were actually beyond my grade level that I heard them for the first time. However it was so impressive that it motivate me to further study. Also through the several cultural classes I had chances to exchange the views with my Japanese friends in Okayama, and I’m sure that these experiences can help me to become much flexible and have open-minded perspective when I meet someone else or encounter other opinions.
2. Is there anything that may change your view towards Japan – Korea relationships after spending some time in Okayama University?
For about 10 days, not that long time but not just short time, I encountered many Japanese in Okayama University, restaurants, hospitals and shopping malls. What I impressed was that they were very kind to me and they are not bother to help me, even I am not that good at speaking Japanese language. Most of them tried to understand what I meant to say. Especially from the class of professor Dong Kwang Kim I learned that there are many necessary to have ‘East Asian community’ for have the common good in economic and political issue in global society. Because of the regional proximity between Korea and Japan, there have been lots of relationships between two countries. Today, there are several problems that we have to solve yet, there is no doubt to the necessity of cooperation and I found out that there are many advantages that japan possesses, hope to have further opportunities to exchange that with the good things in Korea.
3. Please give us some programs in this course that you have enjoyed?
I enjoyed the most diverse classes that I had in this course. One of the most exciting programs was the visiting to the Okayama University hospital. It is closely related to my major and also with my future. As I am just into 4th grade in Korea (2 grade in Japan), I did not had much chance to explore the actual, practical and clinical pharmaceutical things, yet. I’m sorry that I can’t recall the exact name of the pharmacist who guided our team in the hospital. She gave lots of information about the departments including the dispensing part, clinical parts, CRC and so on. As far as I had experience, the development in my department is much faster in Japan. I was so impressed by her explanation that the function of pharmaceutical scientist is now getting more specific and under the expanding. I now recognized that with my expertise I can do many things than I had ever imagined. She explained these kinds of alterations happened in 10 years and expect Korea would change, too. I hope this kind of change would be in the near future.
