김은솔 선생님 Miss Eunsol Kim

Welcome to KUMA

Welcome to KUMA, I am Eunsol, president of the Korean UK Medical Association. We are a group of doctors working to give back to the Korean community and provide pastoral care for doctors in training within the UK. We have been conducting events to enhance access to healthcare for Korean UK residents since 2006. Last year in 2023, under the leadership of Paul Kim, KUMA received the Korean President’s Prize, marking a pivotal point in the History of our society acknowledging the service provided to the people of Korean heritage.

This year I aim to extend our good work to the wider Korean community, by way of holding more networking events for doctors who live in the Midlands and Scotland. We are also organising a Health Awareness Day (HAD) for children, in addition to our annual Adult HAD. This event will be held in partnership with the London Korean School in Chessington.

안녕하세요, 쿠마에 관심을 갖고 저희 웹사이트에 방문해주셔서 감사합니다. 제영 한인 의사협회는 2006년도에 설립이 되어, 현제는 250명이 넘는 한인 의사들이 쿠마의 회원으로 있습니다. 

영국 의료 시스템은 한국과는 매우 다른 구조시스템입니다. 이로 인해 영국에서 의료 서비스를 이용하는데 많은 불편함이 있다는걸 알고 있습니다. 그 괴리감을 줄이고자 매년 건강의날을 주최하며, 한인 분들께 의료와 의료 시스템 정보를 전달 드리며, 더 편리하게 영국 의료 서비스를 이용할수있도록 힘쓰고있습니다. 

올해는 더욱 많은 동포분들에게 도움이 되고자, 어린이 건강의날을 주최할 예정입니다. 런던 한인 학교의 적극적 도움으로 이날을 준비하며, 질병은 치료보다, 예방이 더 중요하다는걸 함께 나누고자 합니다. 

앞으로도 의료봉사와, 환자교육, 그리고 후배양성을 통해, 선한 영향력을 끼치는 재영 한인 의사협회가 될 수 있도록 부단히 노력하겠습니다.
