Korean Neurological Association was officially organized at 1982 in Korea. In 1984, the department of Neurology, college of medicine, Chungnam National University was opened. Field of neurology deals with diverse disorders of central and peripheral nervous systems. Common neurological illnesses are stroke, epilepsy, degenerative disorders such as dementia and Parkinson's disease, vertigo, headache, neuromuscular disorders, and sleep diseases. As elderly patients are rapidly increasing in Korea, role of neurologists are rapidly expanding. Our department have specialized faculty members and experienced unparalleled growth in Korea.

Career Opportunities

In the near future, brain and neuroscience will be a key scholarship in medicine. Growing number of neurologists are devoted in the basic research and clinical fields.

Department of Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery is the special field of operative treatment of space-occupying lesions, such as tumors, hematomas, malformations, infection, degenerative changes, injuries, and other surgically reachable entities of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and cerebrovascular system. Specialized divisions of neurosurgery are vascular, oncological, spinal, peripheral, functional, pediatric, and skull base neurosurgeries. Neurosurgeons provide the operative and non-operative management (i.e., prevention, diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, critical care and rehabilitation) of neurological disorders.

Career Opportunities

During this residency training, neurosurgeons are trained in all aspects of neurosurgery, including the cerebrovascular system, the spine and spinal cord, trauma, tumors, pain management and pediatric surgery. General neurosurgeons can manage their own clinics. To practice advanced specialization within neurosurgery, additional higher fellowship training of one to two years is expected from the neurosurgeon. Those who major in specialized neurosurgical division have many options to acquire their occupation, for example a faculty of university hospital and a specialist of clinical center.
