  • Greeting

I am honored to serve as the 24th president of Korean Academy of Rehabilitation (KARM) for the next two years with the newly formed Professor Sang-Heon Lee as the Chairman of the Board of Directors and executive members. At the same time, I feel a sense of responsibility to confront the challenges and opportunities to come for the development of KARM.

Founded in 1972, KARM has emerged as a big-sized organization compromising of 2760 members and producing more than 100 physiatrists every year. It also has shown remarkable growth by constituting 4 branches, 14 associated academies and academic division, and 1 research group. I would like to owe this successful development to collaborative effort of former presidents, executives and members who have led the academy for last 46 years.

I assure you that 24th executive members will not only dedicate us under KARM’s purpose of ‘development rehabilitation medicine, protect rights and interests of members, promote friendship among members’ but also devote ourselves to education of specialists and securing their career path. Moreover we will put our maximum effort to successfully host the 7th Asia-Oceanian Conference of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine held in Korea in 2020 (AOCPRM2020) and make KARM the global leader in the field of rehabilitation medicine.

I endeavor also to actively participate and lead the society for the improvement of the people’s health and to communicate better with the Korean Medical Association, Korean Academy of Medical Sciences, Korean Hospital Association, and other medical associations, rehabilitation therapist organizations, the government, the congress, the media, and organizations for the disabled and institutional development of the academy in the fields where are needed.

Thank you very much.

Hee Sang Kim M.D., Ph.D.
The 24th President of the Korean Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine
