Dear Members of the Korean Academy of Medical Sciences,

It is the honor I could achieve to have been elected 23rd President of the Korean Academy of Medical Sciences. The Korean Academy of Medical
Sciences (KAMS), which started off as the organization of 34 branch scientific societies in 1966, has become the most prestigious medical academy
society in the Republic of Korea. With this year celebrating its 52nd anniversary, we have grown into a large academic society of 186 subcommittees.
We have been able to achieve this advancement with the contributions of the past and present leaders of the KAMS as well as the pioneers in the
medical fields. We believe the only way to respond to their outstanding accomplishments is to continue their progress and further develop in the future.

In order to fulfill the goals of KAMS, the association holds and conducts the following commitments:

First, we will strive to take a step closer to our members.

To achieve this, we will strengthen academic programs associated with our member societies so that useful information can be provided to our
members. Also, in order to develop clinical practice guidelines that are needed with the arrival of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the use of
artificial intelligence in medical field, we will support and establish a close network with our member societies.

Second,we will take a leap forward for internationalization.

To achieve this, we will actively participate in medical research programs with our member societies, and make sure they benefit from it. Also, we will
strive to establish the academic foundation so that the government can implement medical policies based on mutual trust. As part of these programs,
we will appoint the Director of Medical Insurance Policy for the first time so that he/she can enhance work efficiency in various areas together with the Director of Policy.

Third, we will suggest and practice policies so that reasonable and responsible medical policies can be drafted based on academic evidence.

To achieve this, we will actively participate in medical research programs with our member societies, and make sure they benefit from it. Also, we will
strive to establish the academic foundation so that the government can implement medical policies based on mutual trust. As part of these programs,

Finally, we will strengthen close relationships with the Korean Medical Association, as well as other medical organizations and academic groups related
to life science. Also, we will act as mediators between the academic medicine and the clinical practice in medicine so that various obstacles and
problems that exist can be resolved.

What the KAMS does in the months and years ahead – with the commitment and focus of our leadership, the engagement of new ideas and the launch of exciting new programs and– will touch medical societies for many decades to come.

l would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the past president, Lee Yoon-Seong, and the executive directors once again for their devotion and hard
work. As a successor, I’m eager to roll up my sleeves to work to keep that we continue on an ever positive trajectory.

Thank you.

The 23rd President of the Korean Academy of Medical Sciences
Chang Sung-Goo
