Introduction of the classroom
Department of Pediatrics provide diverse range of services aimed at achieving good health and well-being for all children since 1952. We provide active clinical services with 10 pediatric subspecialties including neurology, neonatology, hematology, oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, pulmonology, allergy, nephrology and gastroenterology.
We anticipate multidisciplinary, dedicated services with the launching of the new state-of-the-art CNU Children's Hospital in 2017. Being the largest tertiary referral pediatric hospital in Chonnam Provice, CNU Children’s hospital will offer not only the most effective and healing care, but also research activities to meet the needs of our patients, families and society.
