On the 24th, the National Assembly Education Committee audited Seoul National University.
There have been claims that Seoul National University Hospital Director Kim Young-tae’s son may have received preferential treatment when transferring to Seoul National University Medical School.
Hospital Director Kim’s son entered KAIST in 2013 and transferred to Seoul National University School of Medicine in 2017. At this time, it is suspected that he built up the so-called ‘specs’ necessary for transfer with the help of his father, hospital director Kim.
■I was an intern at Ewha Womans University Brain Convergence Science Research Institute for four months…listed as a co-author of 4 papers. Mr.
Kim worked as an intern at Ewha Womans University Brain Convergence Science Research Institute during three winter vacations from January 2014 to February 2016. Although his total working period was only four months, he was listed as a co-author on four papers.
The problem is that Ewha Womans University’s Brain Convergence Science Research Institute, which opened in 2013, did not have an official internship system.
Kim Young-ho (Democratic Party of Korea), a member of the National Assembly Education Committee, explained this situation during the audit of government affairs and said, “Professor Ryu In-gyun, the director of the Brain Convergence Science Research Institute at the time, was a classmate with Director Kim in the class of ’82 at Seoul National University’s College of Medicine. Since he was a friend of his father, he was a researcher who was not even in the university’s regulations at the time. “It seems like they hired Hospital Director Kim’s son and created the specifications,” he claimed.
Representative Kim also pointed out that Hospital Director Kim’s son was named as a co-author on four papers by doctoral-level authors during his internship, saying, “It is unusual for a second-year undergraduate student to be named as an author on papers.”
At the same time, he said, “The lead author of the paper on which my son was named is also a graduate of Seoul National University School of Medicine.” He added, “My father, a professor at Seoul National University School of Medicine, hired my son as an intern with the help of a classmate, and a junior doctor helped register the paper. Comprehensive episode of the Seoul National University School of Medicine cartel “He criticized.
■Internship at Ewha Womans University in 2014, which did not officially exist… “My son was interested,
so I applied via email.” According to data submitted by Ewha Womans University to Representative Kim Young-ho’s office, the Brain Convergence Science Research Institute, which opened in April 2013, started its internship program in 2018.
Regarding this, Seoul National University Hospital Director Kim Young-tae responded, “I understand that my son was very interested, so I searched and sent an email, and we were matched.” This means that he took care of his son’s internship, and that he had no involvement in it.
He also explained that as an undergraduate student, he interned for a total of four months every vacation, and that he “actively (researched) and expressed opinions” on the four papers on which he was named as a co-author.
■When transferring to Seoul National University Medical School, he listed Ewha University internship and thesis as his main experience.
Director Kim’s son applied for transfer to Seoul National University Medical School and submitted a self-introduction letter. Here, I listed my experience as an intern at Ewha Womans University’s Brain Convergence Science Research Institute and the paper I was named as a co-author on as my main experience.
If, as Representative Kim pointed out, he had accumulated qualifications through internships and papers with the help of his father, then ‘dad’s chance’ played a decisive role when transferring to university.
Representative Kim Young-ho said that when Mr. Kim was interviewed for transfer to Seoul National University Medical School, the interviewers were all professors at Seoul National University Medical School, and also raised suspicions that his father may have helped.
Rep. Kim said, “If you look at the list of Seoul National University Medical School transfer admission reviewers, all 31 people are professors at Seoul National University Medical School. My father’s junior and senior doctor colleagues,” he said. “It is difficult to trust whether the interview would have been conducted fairly even if Hospital Director Kim had not directly participated in the screening.” “He emphasized.
■I asked for an internship application email…
In an additional question on the afternoon of the 24th, Rep. Kim explained, “I can’t find it.” He said, “I think it may be unfair. However, I hope I can persuade you with the materials.” He said, “I submitted an application by email, but the email, internship confirmation, and interview evaluation We requested that you submit documents, etc. as additional materials.”
Hospital Director Kim’s son claimed, ‘I became an intern at the brain fusion science research center by applying via email without the help of my father,’ so presenting the email from the time could clear up a significant portion of the suspicions.
However, Hospital Director Kim responded that he could not find his son’s first internship application email. After participating in the research, he used ‘ Gmail ‘ to exchange emails with his advisor , but when he applied for the internship, he used multiple email accounts and is currently unable to find the emails.
Hospital Director Kim explained, “(My son) searched for researchers doing research on psychiatry, which he was always interested in, and when he found out about Professor Ryu In-gyun’s lab토스카지노, he sent an email to contact us and had the opportunity to learn at the lab.”
Regarding the thesis, he said, “I participated in research at the same research institute during my vacation period over three years and met the requirements of a thesis author, including not only conducting experiments but also reporting the results and writing a paper review.” Regarding the four papers at the time, Hospital Director Kim’s son said, I attached and submitted the e-mail data exchanged with this advisor.
Director Kim also submitted a list of e-mails exchanged between his son and the professor, saying, “I had to organize what (my son) studied every day and what research he participated in during the internship and send it to the advisor.”
Although he said he could not find the first ‘internship application’ email, he submitted the emails exchanged with his advisor to the National Assembly.
However, these explanations and materials do not completely resolve the suspicions related to the transfer of Hospital Director Kim’s son to Seoul National University Medical School. This is because I was unable to submit the initial ‘internship application email’ that was the opportunity to apply on my own and become an intern without the help of Hospital Director Kim.
At the National Assembly inspection on the 26th, Hospital Director Kim said, “I cannot believe that there are completely no circumstances in which I would have written it if I had known that the professor in charge was my father’s friend,” and “I acknowledge and regret that there were circumstances that could have been misunderstood.”
