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.

The Neurointervention International Fellowship Program aims to provide basic and advanced knowledge and techniques on management of stroke and various neurovascular diseases.
The participating fellows will be provided opportunities to observe and discuss various neurointerventional procedures ranging from interpretation of diagnostic angiograms, to aneurysm coiling, intra/extracranial stenting, AVM/tumor/spinal vascular disease embolization, mechanical thrombectomy of acute ischemic stroke, sclerotherapy, and intra-arterial chemotherapy for retinoblastoma.
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.
