(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Byeong-gyu and Oh Jin-song = “My daughter is in the international class. I would like to tell you that it has absolutely nothing to do with domestic entrance exams.”

This is what Park Min-soo, Second Vice Minister of Health and Welfare, said during a briefing on the 13th while refuting malicious rumors about his children.

The Ministry of Health and Welfare, which is pushing to expand medical school admissions for the first time in 27 years, is actively responding to fake news related to the increase in medical schools.

At a briefing held by the Central Accident Control Headquarters for Collective Action of Doctors held at the Sejong Government Complex on this day, Vice Minister Park was asked, “Please tell me about the rumor that they are planning to increase the number of medical students by 2,000 this year because the Vice Minister’s child is a test taker this year.” He clearly stated that his daughter had nothing to do with the push to increase the number of medical schools.

He said, “It is true that my daughter is a senior in high school. I won’t reveal the school, but she is currently in an international class.” He laughed as if he were empty, saying, “The Vice Minister of Health and Welfare doesn’t make all these important decisions alone.”

Malicious rumors that Vice Minister Park is pushing to increase the number of medical schools for his children to advance to higher education have been spreading around the medical community.

Lim Hyun-taek, president of the Korean Association of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, who is one of the candidates for the next president of the Korean Medical Association (KMA), recently posted a screenshot of Vice Minister Park’s past Facebook post about his daughter on his Facebook page and said, “Ah…Vice Minister Park Min-soo.” He also wrote, “My golden daughter was a senior in high school this year… That’s what it was like…”

Since the Lunar New Year holiday, the Ministry of Health and Welfare has posted fact-checking materials on major issues on its website (www.mohw.go.kr) to clarify the justification for increasing the number of medical schools and to refute the opposing logic of the medical community, and introduced the contents of the recently announced essential medical policy package. We are actively responding.

In the briefing on this day, Vice Minister Park said ▲ The announcement of an increase in medical schools is for election purposes ▲ Mandatory medical reform is a policy that kills or enslaves doctors ▲ The government’s hard-line response to collective action worsens the situation ▲ I am in favor of increasing the number of medical schools, but an increase of 2,000 students is recommended. There are too many ▲ He also refuted five claims, one by one, including that if the number of doctors increases, medical expenses will increase rapidly and health insurance finances will collapse.

In particular, regarding the criticism that the increase in the number of medical schools was too large, he said, “After reducing 351 doctors from 2000 to 2026, it stagnated for 19 years. If there were no reductions, 6,600 more doctors would have been produced in 2025 and over 10,000 more doctors in 2035. “It will happen,” he said, emphasizing that “it is not too much of an increase, but it is too late.”
