The Donguibogam Academy is an international outreach and education program prepared and cosponsored by the Pusan National University, College of Korean Medicine and the Korean Institute of Oriental Medicine. It is currently funded by the Republic of Korea's Ministry of Health and Welfare. Our purpose is to increase awareness of Korean Medicine and share current advancements of Korean Medicine.  Traditional  Korean  Medicine  is a complete  medical  system,  developed  over thousands of years and has greatly contributed  to the treatment  of disease and the promotion  of health. Similar to Western Medicine, laws are regulated in order to develop and vitalize KM. There is a specialized curriculum and educational system in place as well as a medical licensing system, all dedicated to the advancement of KM in Korea.

What is Korean Medicine? Korean medicine (KM) shares its roots and has been largely influenced by TCM but has developed its own unique diagnostic and treatment features. KM does not focus on explicit symptoms but on the specific characteristics of the individuals who are suffering from diseases. KM believes that even for the same causes of disease, different physiologic and pathologic features appear depending on individual differences among people; this is called constitutional medicine.
