New Drive for Nurturing Convergent Creative Talents
Korea University College of Medicine Created Department of Medical Informatics
Korea University College of Medicine (Dean Young-Wook Yoon) newly created the Department of Medical Informatics, leading the promotion of doctors of future generations and multidisciplinary research.
Medical Informatics is found at the intersection of healthcare and technology. It is where skills in both medical and computer sciences come together to research data generated in various fields of medicine. Due to the rapid development of big data and AI which are represented by the 4th industrial revolution, the importance and number of medical science research based on medical informatics have increased.
In line with this new trend, Korea University College of Medicine created the department to nurture innovative talents who can create new forms of medical services such as telemedicine and virtual hospitals with the management and refinement of health data and create an efficient medical system with standardization of medical data.
The department plans to offer various courses such as up-to-date medical informatics, R programming, Python, up-to-date medical statistics, and medical imaging informatics. In particular, since medical informatics is based on a scientific approach to various medical data generated in the clinical field, not only faculty members but clinical adjunct professors will be assigned to facilitate clinical and organic cooperative research.
The department will play a pivotal role in creating an R&D campus in Jeongneung based on data; KU Medicine will relocate in the second half of this year thereto. Together with KU Medicine’s Medical Intelligence & Data Hub, it is expected to lead data and information-based-future and further accelerate the transition to become a hub of global bio-medical convergent research.
“The creation of the Department of Medical Informatics will not only contribute substantially to the development of medicine by leading research that reflects the medical field but also play a pivotal role in cultivating multidisciplinary convergent talents of the future,” said Dean of College of Medicine Young-Wook Yoon. “In the future, we will make efforts to handle comprehensive medical information and become a world-leading educational institution with an academic approach.”
