Daegu Health College (DHC / President Dr. Nam, Sung-hee) has won the international competency award on the 23rd at Seoul President Hotel’s ‘2019 Korean Universities Awards Ceremony.’
DHC was recognized as the best medical specialized college with unrivaled global competency. DHC has been running global talent camps with its sister partnership colleges in more than 10 countries since 2010, and is the first Korean university to host Association of Universities of Asia and the Pacific (AUAP) conference in Korea. In 2016, DHC was designated to simultaneously host youth overseas program and the K-MOVE program, boosting DHC’s global expert development. These programs found jobs for 36 DHC graduates from dental lab science, dental hygiene, optometry, nursing, hotel and catering, and beauty coordination in U.S.A, Australia, Germany, and Japan. More than 40 DHC graduates found jobs overseas in 2017 and 2018.
K-Wedding, K-Food, and K-Dental programs were developed as online (e-learning) programs in 2018 for overseas sales. Prospective students took DHC’s online lectures locally and visited Korea for a week or two for field training, called ‘Flipped Learning.’ More than 10 universities overseas joined this network while DHC hosted short-term foreign students.
DHC’s has won the awards from 4 areas of the ministry of education’s funded projects; WCC fostering project, SCK project, LINC+ project, and autonomous improvement college. Such achievements have influenced the outcome of the most recent award.
