For the Change-Sensitive and Challenging Culture!
College of Dentistry, Wonkwang University(WUCD) is a traditional and prestigious private school that has produced 2,600 dentists for last 36 years since the opening in 1979. To obtain our fundamental educational objective of “Cultivating Excellent Dentists”, WUCD are training our students with necessary knowledge, skill and attitudes. Recently, we have also proceeded outcome-based curriculum reorganization and we are planning to apply it gradually.
WUCD has made active academic results; first ranking student in the 2013 National Dentist Licensing Examination, grand prize in 2013 National Dental Student Research Award Competition, 100% pass rate of enrolled students in 2015 National Dentist Licensing Examination. WUCD are also communicating with our underprivileged neighbors by doing various voluntary services. Moreover, the Second Building of WUCD, that cover total of 5,775 m2, has been constructed in February, 2014. Since it possesses highly advanced academic facilities and seminar rooms that allow for various academic activities, we are expecting vigorous academic presentations.
WUCD also takes pride in close friendship among the students and trust between the professors and the students.
Throughout six-year school course, students form tight attachment with their classmates and other alumni. Gulbi group, deemed to be the pride of our School, is a group made up of 3-4 students in each grade and a professor acting as a mentor. It serves as a meeting for communication between the professors and the students.
Our teaching staff intends to put in constant efforts to cultivate people of both knowledge and virtue. To achieve our goal, WUCD not only needs education of basic knowledge and skills necessary to dentists but also education of liberal arts knowledge. Therefore, WUCD intends to help our students take interest in other fields of studies such as literature, history, philosophy, politics and economics, and hence, make students have proper life values and ethics.
We ask for your unchanging love and support.
