Asan Medical Center strives to become a global standard in the world medicine as a leader of medical development in Korea rather than competing with local counterparts.

Asan Medical Center is at the forefront of the development of future cutting-edge medicine which combines medicine and engineering. Here, the Clinical Research Center is recognized for its exceptional ability in clinical research as it plays a pivotal role in medical development by focusing on research activities instead of theoretical studies while entering into clinical trials agreements with global leading pharmaceutical companies since last year.
