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 Pediatric Neurology(Epilepsy) Fellowship Program focuses on 3 main activities : Epilepsy Surgery, Epilepsy genetics, and Ketogenic diet. More than half of all pediatric epilepsy surgery in Korea are done at our hospital. Pediatric Neurology Training at our hospital will help international physicians gain rich knowledge and experience by participating in these operations. In addition, we are also the first hospital that introduced ketogenic diet in Korea, applying it to 120 patients annually to treat intractable epilepsy. International physicians participating in this fellowship program will not only have opportunities of operation and outpatient clinic observations, but also in academic activities like department conferences, seminars, and research activities like publishing.
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.
