Vision: Yonsei University Health System(YUHS) will strive to be the most reliable medical institution by respecting our patients, as well as providing high quality care through high-tech service, specialization, and collaboration with other medical institutions. UHS will strive to become a leading research institution in medical technology by creating new research fields with the spirit of exploration and cooperation. YUHS wants to be known as the institution offering the most diverse and humane medical education. Following in the footsteps of Missionaries, Allen, Avison, and donor philanthropist Severance, YUHS is committed to medical missions through evangelism and acts of love and concern for others, particularly the most needy with the least access to medical care. In order to achieve these goals, we wish to become mature and responsible specialists; leaders who are open to new ideas and are accomplished practitioners. We are committed to make Yonsei University Health System a place where creativity and warmth thrive in a spirit of mutual respect and cooperation.
