Ha Rim Kwak, Alumna-Health Sciences (’14)

Ha-RimRecent (December 2014) Kinesiology-Health Sciences alumna, Ha Rim Kwak, recently received the news that she has been accepted into the prestigious medical school at Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea.  The four-year program will begin in February 2015.

According to the website for Hanyang University, “the College of Medicine has been educating students to contribute to the progress of medicine through training in both medical theory and professional techniques to become quality modern medical practitioners.”

Ha Rim was able to complete her degree here at Rice in less than 4 years.  She attended Commencement ceremonies in May 2014, and then recently finished her last two courses this fall semester.  She flew back to her home in Korea at the end of November in order to take the exam necessary to attend medical school in her home country.

Ha Rim is the second recent Health Sciences graduate to attend Hanyang University’s medical school.  Dr. Shinhae Lee ’08 attended from 2008-2013 and obtained her medical degree.

Best of luck to Ha Rim in her studies!
