of our program.
The combination of two high-volume HCA acute care hospitals (MountainView
and Sunrise Medical Center with more than 1000 inpatient beds and 78 acute
inpatient rehabilitation beds) and comprehensive outpatient PM&R department
at Veteran Affairs Southern Nevada Healthcare system provide a wide variety
of PM&R cases essential for a well-rounded clinical experience.
The program provides unique learning opportunities involving hands-on learning
experience at state of the art Simulation Center for physiatric skill
development and comprehensive neuro-musculoskeletal medicine review based
on the manual published by the program director.
HCA GME, through its national scale, offers rich opportunities for clinical
research including access to online knowledge resources, nationwide clinical
databases, and a group of expert researchers. Locally, the clinical research

As a program director, I bring more than 10 years of clinical, educational
and administrative experience. I’m a graduate of the Catholic University
of Korea, College of Medicine, and completed Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

In 2007, I stayed as a faculty of Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein
College of Medicine, became Director of Electrodiagnostic Laboratory and
helped begin the ACGME accredited Sports Medicine Fellowship program in
2014. I strive to be a dedicated teacher. I received the “Teacher
of the Year” award by PM&R residents three times during my stay
at Montefiore Medical Center.
I look forward to meeting you. Best wishes on a career in Physical Medicine
