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 Gastrointestinal Surgery Training Program aims to provide international rich knowledge and experience of various relevant clinical cases and in-depth education. Fellows will mainly observe or practice in the operating theater to learn the surgical techniques of upper GI surgery and will have chances to participate in Gastric Cancer Conference for multidisciplinary team approach under the supervision of professors.
The actual clinical performance of these surgeries will equip them with the integrated capacities that are necessary for the education, research, and clinical practice fields.
Under the guidance of supervisors, the fellows are strongly encouraged to actively participate in the clinical research activities to get familiar with professional methods of documenting, oral reporting, and data interpretation.
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.
