Traditional Korean medicine

Traditional Korean medicine is 한의학. Do you know anyone who takes Korean medicine?

First Aid Prescriptions Using Native Ingredients or “Hyangyak Gugeupbang (향약구급방) was published in 1245. I wasn’t even born then.

Herbalism is the study and practice of using plant material for the purpose of food, medicine, or health. They may be flowers, plants, shrubs, trees, moss, lichen, fern, algae, seaweed or fungus. The plant may be used in its entirety or with specific parts being used.

Acupuncture needles are a medical instrument used to cure ailments by the method of withdrawing blood and stimulating certain points on humans and animals by inserting them on specific pressure points of the body

The Korean government decided to establish a national school of traditional Korean medicine to establish its national treasure on the solid basis after closing of the first modern educational facility (Dong-Je medical school) hundred years ago by Japanese invasion.

In 2008, the School of Korean medicine was established inside Pusan National University with the 50 undergraduate students, and moved into Yangsan medical campus. The new affiliated Korean Medical Hospital and Research Center for Clinical Studies are under construction.

I’m Dr. Joseph Chaiwhan Kim and I did not graduate from the National School of Korean Medicine. I went to medical school in America.
