(Incheon = Larose.VIP) Reporter Son Hyeon-gyu = It has been argued that establishing a public medical school in Incheon, which does not have a national medical school, can eliminate medical inequality by training doctors tailored to the region.

Lee Yong-gap, a senior researcher at the Incheon Research Institute, announced the results of a research project on ‘Methods for establishing a public medical school at Incheon National University’ at the main building of the Incheon City Council on the 15th.

Researcher Lee emphasized that Incheon National University’s public medical school can become a focal point for providing essential medical care to the region, and that in the mid- to long-term, local talent can be selected to develop ‘local doctors’.

He argued, “We can strengthen local public health care by establishing a new education system (at public medical schools),” and “We need to train doctors tailored to the region and foster specialized fields that reflect regional characteristics.”

Currently, Incheon is one of the metropolitan local governments that does not have a national medical school, along with Jeonnam, Ulsan, and Sejong.

For this reason, there is a citizen-wide movement calling for the establishment of a public medical school at Incheon National University to eliminate medical inequality in Incheon, a medically vulnerable region.

Researcher Lee explained, “Even though Incheon is an international city next to Seoul, it is a medically underserved area. Even though the population is continuously increasing, the number of students admitted to the two medical schools is only 89.”

In fact, according to the Ministry of Health and Welfare’s ‘Treatable Mortality Status’ data, as of 2021, the treatable death rate per 100,000 people in Incheon was 51.49, the highest in the country. Treatable mortality refers to the proportion of patients who would not have died if treated effectively.

Through this research service, the future selection scale of Incheon National University’s public medical school and plans for establishing a university hospital were also presented.

It was found that public medical schools must select 50 to 100 new students, mainly local talent, and have at least 111 faculty members, including 85 in the field of clinical medicine.

Researcher Lee emphasized that after the establishment of a public medical school, public and private hospitals in the Incheon area must be acquired and expanded or newly built to have its own university hospital with more than 800 beds.

However, as it takes a long time to build a university hospital, the Incheon Medical Center, which currently has 316 beds, will be expanded to 500 beds, and the 2nd Incheon Medical Center, which will be established in the future, will also be built as a general hospital with over 500 beds and used first as a public medical school education and training hospital. presented.

The debate on this day was hosted by the Incheon National University Public Medical School Establishment Promotion Team, and the ‘Public Citizens’ Council for Strengthening Public Healthcare and Incheon National University Public Medical School Establishment’ also participated.

After the announcement of the research results, a discussion session was held chaired by Lee In-jae, Vice President of External Cooperation of Incheon National University.

Kim Song-won, Secretary General of the Incheon Economic Council, Kim Yoon, Professor of Medicine at Seoul National University, Professor Song Ki-min of Hanyang University Graduate School of Medicine, and Kim Dong-won, Director of External Cooperation at Incheon National University, participated as discussants.

Hwang Gyu-cheol, head of the Incheon Love Movement Citizens’ Council, who participated in the pan-citizen council, said, “The government recently announced the expansion of medical school seats, but it is insufficient as a solution to Incheon’s vulnerable medical problems. The results of this study should be reflected in government policy.” said.
