Synopsis
This session in EKC2018 is sponsored by KOFST (The Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies), and through this program supporting the next-generation science & technology leaders, it is expected that the network building and training of Korean young scientific and technological talents among local and overseas lead in creating a strong bond with each other. Also, the next generation of Korean scientists and engineers at home and abroad build a cooperation networking by planning and supporting various programs (e.g. research activities, start-ups, training, etc.) which can enhance the global mindset and capacity-building. In addition, the implementing programs such as research activities, start-ups, and networking will contribute to rear the next-generation scientists and technology leaders, thereby contributing to the expansion of the external environment of national scientific capabilities and international efforts to resolve the global agenda. Furthermore, it develops the public diplomacy by cooperation with the next-generation scientists and technological leaders at home and abroad and contributes to not only upgrading the nation's science and technology but also building a futuristic soft power platform.

Since its establishment in 2006 as KMDA-UK (Korean Medical and Dental Association - UK), KUMAS now stands as the integrated student body of KUMA. The primary mission statement of KUMAS is to facilitate social networking between the members in mind of promoting global professionalism in the doctors of tomorrow. KUMAS has been closely supported by our currently active graduate membership. For the past 11 years, KUMAS has successfully run the Careers & Information day for potential medical students on an annual basis. Previous student attendees have found the day extremely useful, with several going on to receiving offers from their respective medical schools. For the first time, KUMAS is providing this talk in Glasgow, and aim to deliver a broad insight into the application process: 1. What makes a successful application? 2. Personal statement 3. UKCAT / BMAT examinations 4. Medical school interview There will also be a unique opportunity to ask questions to current medical students of diverse background. As those recently having undergone the entirety of the application process, this event will be of an invaluable experience to those with an interest in pursuing a career in Medicine.
