The standard of healthcare in Busan is high. Hospitals are equipped with state of the art equipment and staff are well trained. Many hospitals in Busan are attached to universities. There are also many reputable private clinics throughout the city.  

Expats don’t have to be concerned about language barriers when it comes to healthcare in the city. Most large hospitals and international clinics have English-speaking staff. It’s also common for hospitals to have interpreting services available.

Pharmacies in Busan are also plentiful and easy to find throughout the city. However, they are rarely attached to hospitals and seldom open 24-hours. Korean pharmacies, called yak-guk, are usually indicated by the yak symbol displayed at the front of the store or in the window. It’s advisable to have a Korean friend or colleague write down what is needed in Korean as many pharmacists don’t speak English well.
