Department of Medicine
We put emphasis on raising genuine medical doctors who are able to serve
mankind by teaching medical ethics and major medical courses. There three
main educational policies of the department: produce medical doctors who
have basic and clinical medical knowledge teach students to have active and
creative minds in their major subjects encourage students to be philanthropic
doctors who care for patients as they care for themselves To accomplish these
goals, we open required theory and clinic integrated classes and a discussion
centered problem-solving class. We also encourage students to join various
extra-curriculum education programs and club activities to raise the spirit
of team work and service spirit. Hospitals in Gyeongju and Illsan will try
to establish better educational and research environments, and lead the development
of the medical field through research of theories and clinical treatments.
With the continual improvement of hardware and software in facilities and
education, we will foster excellent knowledge and personalities in medical
doctors. For further information of academic matters, please visit our homepage
or call the department office. We ask your support and concern to the development
of our medical college and medical graduate school.

Every student has to take all major subjects, but if he or she misses one
single class or earns an average credit lower than 2.0, he or she will no
longer be promoted to the next grade. The education system of medical school
runs by year, therefore, if a student cannot meet the requirements, he or
she should take all classes again for the grade. Students must pass a graduation
examination for graduation and for the National Examination for Medical Practitioners,
which is a graduation examination.
After passing the national examination, students are able to work as interns
and residents at university hospitals, general hospitals, or private hospitals,
and they participate in diagnosing and treating patients. Students become
qualified specialists by completing the training course for residents and
passing the specialist's exam Students who are not interested in treating
patients but in surveying and teaching are able to work and study at the
same time in basic medicine laboratories. In the field of basic medicine,
there are courses in anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, microbiology,
pathology, and preventive medicine.
