SAIHST is open for any undergraduate students majored in medicine, biology, pharmacology and public health who are interested to expand their career path in the healthcare industry and to contribute Korea to become the leading Health Sciences country.
With the establishment of The Samsung Advanced Institute for Health Sciences and Technology (SAIHST) on March 2011, The Department of Health Sciences and Technology was born to contribute the clinical medicine and health sciences and technology (HST) of Korea. Even though Korea is one of the leading countries in treating patients in clinical medicine, the knowledge and technology used to treat patients are from other advanced countries. In order to step up to be the leader in medicine, the education in medicine must have the concrete ground on academia with firm research infrastructure. Thus, this department provides the program to educate and research clinical medicine in interdisciplinary aspects.
