Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Korea University Medicine.

The story of Korea University Medicine began in 1928. From its beginnings as Joseon Women's Medical Institute, the first medical training institution for women in the country, Korea University Medicine has treated the medically underserved, practiced philanthropy, and embraced the pain of the times for over 90 years. It has grown into a multihospital institution that includes 3 hospitals (Anam, Guro, Ansan), 1 college of medicine, and 3 graduate schools – all demonstrating remarkable achievements in various areas including education, research, healthcare, and social development.

Continuing our legacy of the last century, Korea Medicine University received the world's first ISO 14155 certification, the international standard covering medical device clinical investigation, for general hospitals. Our two research-centric hospitals were successfully re-designated as "research-centric" by the government for the third time. The Korea University College of Medicine ranked among the top 100 medical schools in the world by the Times Higher Education. We have continuously evolved to serve humanity through patient care, medical research, and medical education of the highest quality.

As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Korea University Medicine in 2028, we are embarking on a new journey to be one of the best in Korea and the world. Based on our core values of the Best Medicine, the Best Personnel, and the Best Value, the goal of Korea University Medicine is to make a leap forward to be the world's leading institution. We strive to serve humanity at home and abroad and strengthen our position as a trusted medical institution.

All of our 8,000 employees are committed to upholding the principle of respect for life with unwavering compassion. We will spare no effort to usher in a new era where humanity would be free from the suffering of disease and lead a healthy life. Thank you for your continued interest and support.

Dr.Young Hoon Kim president of Korea University Medicine.
