Thank you for visiting the official homepage of the Korean Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine (KARM).

I was appointed as the 22nd President of the KARM at the 42nd general assembly on October 25th, 2014. Along with Professor M.S Bang; the newly appointed chairman; I am to work with the 22nd executive board members of the KARM to represent our Congress for the next two years.

I would like to express my gratitude to the former executive board members who have been dedicated to leading and establishing the KARM to its present status, and to the members of the KARM for their support.

The history of the KARM began in 1971, with 50 members who helped lay the foundation of rehabilitation medicine in the Korean peninsula. It is due to their dedicated work that the KARM has grown exponentially over the past 42 years to its current size with 2124 members.

The KARM has grown to represent rehabilitation medicine in the Asia-Oceania region. It has also become an important collaborator across the world with many countries after the successful hosting of the World Congress of the ISPRM on July, 2007.

Also, I am proud to introduce the KARM as one of the many acknowledged medical societies in Korea with academic research of world-class level along with a high level of expertise in clinical practice. The KARM also publishes its official journal, the Annals of Rehabilitation Medicine, which is indexed on Scopus and is also on available in English. The KARM also participates in social and political issues that concern the welfare and human rights of those with disabilities in Korea.

As in many countries around the world, the KARM is always confronted by political issues and social obstacles that threaten its current status and growth. It is the mission of the 22nd executive board members of the KARM to promote its growth both domestically and internationally. We endeavor to continue the work laid by our predecessors in establishing the KARM as one of the leading rehabilitation societies in the world.

We are always open to your feedback, and any request for more information on the KARM is always be welcome. Thank you once again for visiting our homepage.
