Yong H. Auh   Professor of Radiology


After I graduated from medical school inKorea in 1972, I had five years of postgraduate training in radiology including one year of rotataing intership.  I arrived in the United States in 1977,  and trained in radiology at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia for two years. This was followed by a year (1979) of fellowship tranining in abdominal imaging at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center.  I was invited to join the Radiology faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College where I remained until 1986.   At this time, I returned to Korea to as the chair of radiology department at the brand new hospital.  This institution became the largest and one of the best institutions in Korea in a very short period time. After stepping down as chair, I returned to the United States in 2000 and rejoined the Department of Radiology at Weill Cornell as a  Chief of the Division  Body imaging.  I have published more than 200 papers in peer-reviewed journals and have authored three books and 14 chapters in distinguised radiology textbooks. I enjoy teaching and have been an invited lecturer to numerous conferences and have been visiting professor to several institutions  in Korea and China.
