Picket against expansion of medical school quota at the Korean Medical Association

Picket against expansion of medical school quota at the Korean Medical Association

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Oh Jin-song = While the Korean Medical Association (KMA) protested against the government’s policy to expand the number of medical school students and announced collective action, the Emergency Response Committee of the Medical Association, which leads the struggle, encouraged members to participate in the struggle. .

The Medical Association’s emergency committee said in a statement on the 13th, “The government is trying to destroy the excellent and safe medical system of Korea with its ridiculous plan to increase the number of medical school students by 2,000 students every year from 2025. The purpose of the government policy is to expand regional and essential medical services.” “It was revealed that it was the eradication of doctors and the destruction of the medical system,” he claimed.

He continued, “The government unilaterally decided to increase the number of medical school students on a large scale and made a surprise announcement,” adding, “All members are angry at the fact that the 2020 agreement with the government became a piece of paper, and the 28 meetings of the Medical Issues Council were used as a sideshow.” “I couldn’t help it,” he criticized.

He also said, “The government unilaterally decided to increase the number of students by relying on public opinion by using irrational methods such as incomplete papers and medical school quota demand surveys,” and “obsessed with the wrong political prejudice that increasing the number of medical school quota is a necessary condition, the overall medical policy was thrown into confusion.” “I’m driving it,” he said.

At the same time, he said, “We can never sit idly by and watch the government attempt to destroy in an instant the great medical system that doctors have built over a long period of time,” and added, “We ask all members to unite and join the fight against the emergency committee with a single, steel-like force until the end.” I requested.

When the government announced on the 6th of this month that it would increase the number of medical school students in the 2025 academic year by 2,000, the Korean Medical Association held an extraordinary general meeting of representatives and established an emergency committee, predicting collective action such as a general strike the next day. The head of the emergency committee is Kim Taek-woo, president of the Gangwon Provincial Medical Association.
