Since founded in 1963, College of Health Sciences Korea University has the longest history and tradition in Korea Health-related academic fields and still retains a high position and reputation as a public health professional educational institution and presently performs its duty as the leader.
The college had seven departments including clinical pathology, radiology, physical therapy, dental lab science, public health administration, and one faculty of health science(departments of food and nutrition, and environmental health) for undergraduate programs. In addition, we are going to include "department of biomedical engineering" as a undergraduate program and "department of health science" as a graduate program in 2008. We currently run national and international accredited inspection institutions, as well as a health science research center dedicated to the next generation national core health science. Furthermore, we run special courses on ultrasonic waves and dental lab science, and hold a variety of patented technologies related to functional food and hazardous material processing, which contributes to the research and specialization of public health science technology.
Nowadays, more innovative changes in public health environment for human healthy and quality life are required.
