(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Seo Seong-ho = The Ministry of Health and Welfare asked residents and medical students who recently discussed collective action plans in opposition to the expansion of medical schools to focus on their studies and training.

They urged their senior doctors, former officials of the Korean Medical Association (KMA), not to encourage group action and to stop making violent remarks.

Park Min-soo, Second Vice Minister of Health and Welfare, said this at a briefing held after the meeting of the ‘Physicians’ Collective Action Central Accident Control Headquarters (Heavy Duty Version)’ on the 14th.

Vice Minister Park emphasized, “Residents and medical students are the future of medical care in Korea,” and “The medical reform promoted by the government is intended to improve the workplace so that young doctors can focus on medical treatment with pride.”

He said, “The government will definitely improve the working conditions of young doctors,” and added, “I ask residents and medical students to pour their vitality and energy as young doctors into their studies, training, and medical development.”

The Ministry of Health and Welfare plans to provide a forum for discussion with young doctors, including residents and medical students, and has requested that they actively participate in the conversation.

Vice Minister Park said to the families of young doctors, including residents, “We must make sure that the time of patience that the family endured until becoming a doctor is not in vain.” “I hope you will be encouraged to stay by the patient’s side,” he said.

He also said, “Some doctors who held key positions, such as the president of the Korean Medical Association, are instigating the struggle. Please stop this behavior immediately.” He also said, “Please stop spreading false facts or distorted information, and stop public officials or experts who support increasing the number of medical schools.” “Please stop using violent language towards people,” he said.

Some former presidents of the Korean Medical Association were on the crossroads of public opinion with comments such as “The government cannot defeat doctors,” “Did you think they would get tired of scaring you?” and “We will all leave the emergency medical field.”

Regarding the call to completely cancel the expansion of medical schools and the mandatory package policy, Vice Minister Park said, “Rather than ‘opposition for the sake of opposition’, which rejects everything without an alternative, please reveal what the problem is specifically and how to fix it,” and “The government is proposing “We will listen to any content and reflect it in our policies,” he said.

He went on to say, “The central government is checking the rapid implementation of essential package policies to promote medical reform without a hitch,” and added, “We will strengthen the role of the National University Hospital as a regional base hospital and develop clinical trials, research, and education in a balanced and groundbreaking manner.” “We will speed up the improvement of the system to make it happen,” he said.
