Interview with Professor Curie AHN of SNU Hospital

Professor Curie AHN, a leading specialist in the field of immunology and transplant immunology, was interviewed by Kyunghyang Shinmun as part of a series of interviews with female doctors. Professor Ahn was the first female doctor in SNU Hospital’s Department of Internal Medicine and is a pioneer of Korean public health services, volunteering at the Raphael Center, a medical center for immigrants, for the past 18 years. The reason she became a doctor, she says, is because her mother was diagnosed with tuberculosis, a hard to cure disease when Prof. Ahn was a little girl. Professor Ahn is also a relentless scholar, having published more than 90 articles in medical journals. She stated that she wants to be a humane doctor, as reflected in her motto ‘God even looks after tiny, nameless flowers’.
