Severance International Fellowship (SIF) is open to foreign physicians, dentists, nurses, medical technicians, or hospital administrators who wish to experience clinical care, operative procedures, and participate in research activities at Severance Hospital(Sinchon) Seoul, Korea. This program builds on the hospital’s long legacy and mission to educate future clinical leaders in healthcare and ultimately reducing health inequalities in the global society.
The Nephrology Fellowship Program aims to provide international physicians with rich knowledge and experiences in the management of adult patients with chronic kidney diseases. The program immerses fellows in all facets of nephrology care including acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, end-stage kidney disease, and transplantation. Fellows are regarded as trainees with graduated responsibilities in a mentorship model, and independent practice rights under supervision are gradually given. Fellows will have opportunities to observe or practice in outpatient clinics and in the hospital wards. Fellows are encouraged to participate and complete at least one research project, either a clinical or basic research project based on their interests and goals of their careers.
All participants of our SIF program will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the training. The certificate will be issued by the President & CEO of Yonsei University Health System.
Severance Academy operates various SNS or online communities, where you can communicate freely with other international trainees who were in Severance before or will be training soon. You can get help from other physicians or medical staffs before you come to Korea and get some useful tips including their training experience, accommodations, good restaurants near the hospital etc. We will also update the newest news of Severance regularly at this homepage. Severance Academy will also host offline gatherings exclusive for international trainees, or invite you to official events hosted by Severance Hospital or governement institutions.
