Department of Family Medicine

Department of Family Medicine

The Department of Family Medicine at the Yonsei University Health System is regarded as the birth of family medicine in Korea.

The Department of Family Medicine provides consistent medical care to patients. It takes full responsibility in the entire stages of patients’ health improvement, health counseling, and medical treatment and prevention of diseases from the beginning to the end.

For a certain symptom, the Department of Family Medicine suggests the best method to solve problems while listening to the words of patients instead of telling that “it is not my area of specialty.”

The Department of Family Medicine tries its best to offer a wide range of medical services, extending to health improvement and maintenance, medical treatment and other clinical areas while approaching preventive medicine and rehabilitation medicine as well as medical treatment.

Modern medicine has neglected humans that are the subject of medicine due to the disease-centered trend and classification. Family medicine, born as the solution for such dehumanization, provides all-rounded medical services that consider mental and social perspectives as well as physical treatment when caring for patients and their family. Also, it provides various special diagnosis and treatment services such as for health improvement, fatigue, obesity, geriatric diseases and intra-muscular stimulation. Also in the 21st century, the Department of Family Medicine at the Yonsei University Health System will play a leading role in the family medicine of Korea.
