PURPOSE: With the changes to the medical environment and to the educational system, we aim to evaluate the current mission statement of the College of Medicine, Ewha Womans University, and revise it. METHODS: To establish the new mission statement, a special committee, the School Mission Revision Committee(SMRC) and an advisory group were organized in 2003. The SMRC functioned through 4 stages of action composed of: investigation, draft development, surveillance of various opinions, and announcement. RESULTS: The revised, final mission statement was: "To contribute to Korea and to the international society by producing excellent woman-leaders in healthcare, who have professional medical knowledge and are humanitarians based on Christian principles." Three key words helped in the realization of this mission: compassion, professionalism, and service. Compassion: a noble physician who practices compassion toward mankind, caring for patients with compassion and the right attitude, and contributing to health promotion. Professionalism: a responsible physician who embodies professionalism, learning the necessary knowledge and skills, having the ability for self-development, and leading in various fields of medicine. Service: a respected physician who serves society, devoting to the community with excellent woman leadership skills and an open mind, and serving Korea and the international society. CONCLUSION: We expect that this new school mission will be helpful in clarifying the whole educational process and will resolve conflicts resulting from the change to the school system within a rapidly changing educational environment.
