Shah, an Indian fellow said. 쏛lthough I셫 very busy every day, there셲 no better opportunity like this to learn Korea셲 state-of-the art treatment system and medical expertise in-depth. 쏤ellowship is very important for academic experience for doctors as it gives them fundamentals of academic activities, said Dr. Jung Dong Chang.

These plaques are given to encourage international fellows to closely work with HUMC for treating patients in their home countries when they face difficulties treating patients there due to limited resources.쏷he ultimate goal of Hallym International Fellows Day is to encourage international fellows to make greater contributions for improving healthcare of patients in their home countries and to take the lead in medical advancement, said Dr. Ho-Guen Chang, director of Hallym University Dongtan Sacred Heart Hospital. 쏛s a leading medical institution with world-class medical expertise, the HUMC will continue developing international fellowship program to dedicate to the welfare of humankind.쒿he Hallym International Fellows Day, created by international cooperation team, is born after HUMC decided to host an event to bring all international fellows together at one place in appreciation for their hard work in fellowship program and to deepen friendship.
