He continued, “The government says there is a shortage of doctors because the number of doctors per 1,000 people is below the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) average. However, there are only a few OECD countries like Korea where you can easily receive medical services at low costs. “The government’s argument has little validity in that it does not work,” he argued.

He emphasized, “Increasing the number of students by 2,000 will create the same situation as establishing 24 new medical schools. This will seriously reduce the quality of medical school education and ultimately result in undermining the people’s right to health.”
