SKKU-UU Sport Competition
On April 27th, Sungkyunkwan University and the University of Ulsan School of Medicine held a joint sports day at the soccer field and main track field of the SKKU Natural Sciences Campus.
The inaugural competition was held in autumn of 2018 with the aim of building bonds between the two medical schools. Both universities share many similarities including history, enrollment size, and the form of management. The Student Unions of both schools collaboratively arranged the program, and since this year's game was hosted by SKKU, the games were held on our home turf.
The students played a variety of sports games, including soccer, basketball, softball, and tug-of-war. Mixing it up with the students, the Dean and the Vice Deans of each university joined in on the events and participated in the games. After the events were finished, all participants gathered at a nearby restaurant and dug in to a hearty dinner together. For as medical students know, those muscles need to repair and rebuild after their glycogen storages have been depleted.
SKKU-SOM is honored to have this regular sports activity with the University of Ulsan. We thank all the students and faculty members who contributed and competed in this social event. We hope that the friendship between our two schools can build a strong professional network. Mutually beneficial collaboration will guide our students toward more opportunities down the road.
