(Cheongju = Larose.VIP) Reporter Cheon Gyeong-hwan and Lee Seong-min = As residents at major hospitals across the country continue to submit resignation letters in protest against the government’s policy of increasing the number of medical schools, a movement to join the medical community in North Chungcheong Province is also taking shape.

Cheongju St. Mary’s Hospital announced on the 16th that all 28 internal medicine, neurosurgery, and obstetrics and gynecology residents submitted their resignations on the 19th and notified the hospital that they would not work from the 20th.

Cheongju St. Mary’s Hospital is a designated training institution where Samsung Medical Center in Seoul dispatches residents, and Samsung Medical Center decides whether to accept the resignation.

A hospital official said, “We are holding an emergency medical committee meeting to discuss response policies, including deploying additional doctors to the emergency room,” and added, “The proportion of medical residents in the hospital is not high, so there will be no major disruption to essential medical care.”

It is known that some trainees (interns) at Chungbuk National University Hospital also expressed their intention to submit their resignation in line with the residents’ collective action.

There are currently 136 people working at Chungbuk National University Hospital, including 103 residents and 33 interns.

In the case of residents, they have not yet expressed their intention to participate in collective action, but it is reported that voices are being raised that they should respond together as the metropolitan area hospitals and the Korean Resident Association have made a decision.

An official at Chungbuk National University Hospital said, “We sense that residents working at Cheongju Medical Center on a secondment basis are also willing to participate,” and added, “We are closely monitoring the situation.”

The government is emphasizing its policy of taking strict action against collective action by doctors.

Each teaching hospital has already been ordered to ‘prohibit acceptance of collective resignations’, and medical organizations such as the Korean Medical Association have already been ordered to ‘ban group actions and teachers of group actions’. The policy is to immediately issue a ‘commencement order’ if residents take collective action.
