After the meeting with Dean Choe, the students had opportunity to look around the SKKU-SOM education facilities at Samsung Medical Center.

The bus arrived at the Medical Building where the first 2.5 years of the SKKU-SOM MD program is held. The students were provided with lunch box, and enjoyed lunch at the lecture hall at the Medical Building. After lunch, the current students at SKKU-SOM gave brief introduction to life as medical school students, and also provided guidelines in the admission process of SKKU-SOM. The students were taken around the Medical Building and the campus to find out how campus life is at SKKU-SOM. As the last part of the program, the students were divided into small groups to have personal Q&A session with the students at SKKU-SOM.
