  Message from Graduate Choi Seon-gyu

Choi Seon-gyu

I am Choi Seon-gyu who has enrolled the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science in 2005.
When I returned to school after being discharged from the military, I thought a lot about my future career and became curious about the field of medical statistics.

I entered the graduate school of medical statistics thinking that I could make a beneficial contribution to the field of medicine that saves people. I am currently working as a researcher in the Biostatistics Department at the Biostatistics and Clinical Epidemiology Center at Samsung Hospital. I am in charge of managing and analyzing various clinical data.

I feel rewarded by collaborating with doctors through statistical and clinical data analysis and completing the thesis. In addition, various statistics graduates are working in various fields, including pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations (CROs), and national health institutions.

The basic statistics subjects and computing skills I learned in my undergraduate studies are now helping me a lot. I wanted to point out that there is also a path to medical statistics among many different fields that you can enter after graduating from our department. Finally, I want you to become a good medical statistician.
