Results of medical exam done in Korea to be accredited outside of Korea, too.


Results of medical examinations done in Korea
will now be accredited outside the country. The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy
signed a Mutual Recognition Arrangement with the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation
Cooperation. This will allow the results of both diagnostics
and treatments to be used internationally. Before the arrangement was signed, Koreans
planning to study or work abroad had to get a physical done at a local health institution
specified by the corresponding country. Now, a total of six Korean hospitals, including
Seoul Samsung Hospital, Seoul National University Hospital, and Asan Medical Center are certified
to provide such services.
