Medicine is a study of phenomenon regarding human life and diseases. The goal of our college is to train doctors and nurses with compassion, which are what Korea and the world need in the twenty-first century. With its founding educational philosophy of "saving the world through the healing arts, benevolence, and virtue," Inje University seeks to practice its motto of "honesty, sincerity, and diligence" to serve the local community and the country. The school ultimately works to nurture "ethical, collaborative, and practical human beings" who can contribute to the implementation of a welfare society. In order to fulfill its responsibilities recommended by the World Health Organization and the mission of training medical professionals providing healthcare services to the community, Inje University provides student-oriented, integrated, patient-oriented, and field oriented clinical and medical education.
