Medical School

Medicine is the science of diagnosing, treating, or preventing disease and other damage to the body or mind. There is a multitude of medical research that is now directed toward such problems as cancer, heart disease, AIDS, reemerging infectious diseases, organ transplants, and cell replacement. Currently, the largest worldwide study is the Human Genome Project, which will identify all hereditary traits and body functions controlled by specific areas of the chromosomes. Gene therapy, the replacement of faulty genes, offers the possible abatement of hereditary diseases. Genetic engineering has led to the development of important pharmaceutical products.
The Medical School is committed to teaching and training students with the most modern and efficient academic programs. The programs are aimed at producing capable primary care physicians and creative medical scientists. To meet these institutional objectives, the Medical School offers both undergraduate and graduate courses which lead to advanced degrees including master's and doctorates.
The undergraduate education is composed of 2-year premedical and 4-year medical courses.
The campus of the Medical School is located in the central part (Hak-dong) of Gwangju, away from the main campus of the university. It takes less than 10 minutes to get downtown on foot. The Hak-dong campus occupies about 80,000 ㎡ of land, and within this area is the Chonnam University Hospital.
