I had the most wonderful opportunity to gain greater exposure to the different facets of medicine that differed from the Western convention. Working in the office and shadowing in the International Clinic gave me a novel perspective on how medicine (both clinical and administration) works in Korean healthcare.

For me, one of the most memorable experiences was watching the intro videos to explain Jaseng and Korean Medicine. I learned to value the patients experience more and to let them take charge of their own healing. (Remote working in the States)

The Internship Program at Jaseng Hospital was a unique opportunity that exposed me to Korean and integrative medicine for the first time. I hope that, as much as it was a valuable experience for me, I will be able to take these new insights and apply them to my future studies.

I was able to learn a great deal about Korean medicine and integrative medicine during my time at Jaseng. I am grateful that I was able to observe methods of treatment used in Korean medicine, such as acupuncture, cupping, and Chuna manipulation, and hope to see these in use more globally in the future.

For the past two months of working as an intern, I learned a lot of things. Although I did not have a chance to work at the hospital very much, I did come to believe that Jaseng’s medicine is a lot like conventional medicine.

I came to appreciate the holistic patient approach that is an integral part of the doctor-patient interaction at Jaseng, which aims not only to treat the condition itself, but also to maintain the patient's personal well-being. There is a high level of trust between doctor and patient only found at such an institution that upholds result-driven customized personal care.

Jaseng internship was one of the most memorable learning experiences I have had throughout my course of study. I have learned ways to organize events from scratches, conduct marketing research, and understanding the operational system in a hospital.

Perhaps most strikingly, however, was the attention to individuals and their health, while producing medication for people around the country. Each case and each patient was uniquely cared for.

My experience at Jaseng Hospital was very immersive. I loved learning about all the different modalities of medicine and witnessing first hand how Korean medicine is practiced.
