Dear esteemed members
It has been 25 years since our society has been established at June 1, 1990.
Since then, the Korean Society of Thyroid Head and Neck Surgery has grown in terms of membership, influence and credibility.
Thanks to the leadership of the senior members and the followership of the juniors, our society is now considered as one of the most exemplary Medical Society in South Korea. Along with the outstanding achievements of each member, the advance of our society has gained international acknowledgment in variable fields in Thyroid and Head & Neck Surgery.
I believe that our society is at the height of its endeavor and dynamic advance to establish the role as one of the worldwide leader in the field of Thyroid and Head & Neck cancer. This has come along with increasing number of international academic meetings and collaboration with celebrated head and neck surgeons from many countries. I appreciate their enthusiastic cooperation, which has contributed to the advance of our society. I hope that the collaboration and friendship with variable international head and neck societies will be enhanced during my service.
As the new president of the society, I will make every effort for the unity among members internally, and for the international jump externally. This I believe will be realized based on the foothold provided by the successive presidents and cooperation between the executive directors and chairman of each committee who will work with me for the next two years.
I ask for your constant care and affection for the ongoing development of the society.
