Abstract

The Korean Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy was established in 1976 for academic exchanges between endoscopic specialists. It joined the Korean Academy of Medical Science in 1988 and founded The Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Research Foundation of Korea in 2009 for academics, education, and research on gastrointestinal endoscopy. The Korean Academy of Medical Science rated this academic society 250 out of 275 points, which is equivalent to 91 points when converted to a 100 point scale. Globalization is the recommendation of the Korean Academy of Medical Science. To pursue globalization, this academic society will publish and register English journals on Index Medicus and encourage the use of English during symposiums. Such efforts will allow this academic society to better cooperate and exchange knowledge with academic societies of other countries. Moreover, this academic society must contribute socially by enlightening the public about endoscopy.
