Dr. You Won Choi, an Associate Professor from Ewha Womens University Hospital in Seoul Korea, will be a visitng professor in the department of Dermatology for this academic year. Below is her self-introduction. I hope you will join us in welcoming her to Iowa.

I am very glad to introduce myself. My name is You Won Choi, a dermatologist from Ewha Womens University Hospital in Seoul, South Korea. I arrived in Iowa in August with my sons (my oldest son is a student of the University of Iowa). I was surprised ijn the beautiful rich natural environment of Iowa City. The weather was beautiful and the farms were fantastic.

The University of Iowa and Ewha Womens University have a sisterhood relationship, so many Korean doctors have visited teh University of Iowa Hosptial and Clinics. Thanks to Dr. Fairley's consideration, I will be studying dermatopathology at the University of Iowa as a visiting scholar for one year. I sincerely thank Dr. Stone, Dr. Liu, Dr. Swick and the intelligent residents for lots of kindness and help. I am looking forward to many more good experiences in Iowa.
