Candidate academician, Professor and Doctor of Medicine Kim Hak Chon of the skin disorders prevention department of the Central District People’s Hospital in Pyongyang is an authority in the dermatological field enjoying respect from the people. Whenever people ask him how he became a medical worker, he says, “It was my dream to help the people live free of illness in this nice country.”
Over the 50-odd years of his career in the field of dermatology he has solved many sci-tech problems including the early diagnosing of skin cancer and, based on this, rendered great service to the development of medical science and the training of medical talent by writing numerous books and papers. While working at a central hospital after graduating from Chongjin Medical College in 1960 he studied new remedies for preventing several obstinate diseases peculiar to the elderly and enhanced therapeutic efficacy of shingles by means of cutaneous acus stimulation, cupping and ultraviolet treatment.
Afterwards, he himself took in charge of the research task of establishing medical therapy of psoriasis which is known as one of the obstinate skin diseases. At that time in Korea some successes were gained in treating psoriasis by applying an immunity control method based on use of medication, but the method showed considerable side effects and a high recurrence rate. In the course of repeated study of the disease he found a unique treating method. It was to apply stimulation by direct current electric acupuncture. Then he tried to apply it into clinical treatment.
