The Korea Foundation for International Healthcare (KOFIH) said Tuesday that the Ministry of Education has selected the institution as a career experience center for the younger generation.
KOFIH is healthcare and overseas aid-specialized agency under the Ministry of Health and Welfare that spreads Korea's advanced medical system to foreign countries and carries out healthcare support projects to contribute to the promotion of international cooperation and humanitarianism.
The career experience center certification is a system, in which the education ministry grants accreditation to institutions, which have provided free, high-quality career experience programs to students free of charge for the past year.
KOFIH is running a career experience program called a “Free Semester System,” which the foundation has run 20 times over the past three years.
Through the program, students can experience the health and medical official development assistance (ODA) projects, learn about the late Professor Lee Jong-wook, the sixth secretary-general of the World Health Organization, as well as experience the world of international development cooperation.
“KOFIH will continue to make efforts to contribute to the development of human resources for healthcare and to fulfill its social responsibilities as a public institution,” the foundation said.
