International Relations

Director's Message

Thank you for visiting the homepage of the Division of International Relations.

With the goal of creating a “Global Severance,” our office opened in November of 2004 as the Division of External Affairs, and our name changed to the Division of International Relations in May of 2009.

The Division of International Relations supports various international endeavors of the Yonsei University Health System, including coordinating institutional relationship programs, welcoming visitors from overseas, and assisting international student and scholar programs. Another important part of the work we do is publicizing and marketing the services of our hospitals to medical travelers.

We promise to continue to do our best with various international-related projects at the Yonsei University Health System.
