Doctors' collective action Central Accident Control Headquarters briefing

Doctors’ collective action Central Accident Control Headquarters briefing

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Byeong-gyu = The Korean Medical Association (KMA) Emergency Response Committee (hereinafter referred to as the emergency committee) issued a statement on the 20th, saying that the residents’ resignation was an exercise of basic rights guaranteed by the Constitution, calling it ‘violence’, ‘dictatorship’, etc. He strongly criticized the government using words.

The emergency committee pointed out, “Residents who resigned of their own free will were exercising their basic rights guaranteed by the Constitution,” and “the government is encouraging medical workers who have resigned and are unemployed to work in violation of the Labor Standards Act and the Medical Service Act.” .

At the same time, he said, “It is common sense in a country governed by the rule of law that if it is judged to be in violation of the Constitution and laws, its effectiveness is denied,” and “It is reasonable to demonize and criticize those who give up their path as doctors due to wrong policies and force them to work through violent orders.” “What do you think?” he asked.

The emergency committee said, “If this situation of ignoring the Constitution and Labor Standards Act and using violence against one group is not a dictatorship, what is it?” and “If the government is justified in killing a group that holds the people hostage, then what kind of regrets will all doctors in the Republic of Korea have in the future?” “I hope you keep in mind that you have no choice but to give up your medical career,” he said.

“Unplanned increase in medical schools will ruin health insurance finances.”

“Unplanned increase in medical schools will ruin health insurance finances.”

According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, 6,415 residents, or 55% of residents, submitted resignation letters at 100 major teaching hospitals at 11 p.m. the previous day. The Ministry of Health and Welfare issued a return to work order to a total of 831 people.

Meanwhile, in this statement, the Korean Medical Association claimed that Vice Minister of Health and Welfare Park Min-soo made hateful remarks against women while explaining the research method for increasing the number of medical schools at a briefing that day, and continued the previous day’s demand for Vice Minister Park’s resignation.

Explaining the research results of the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs, the Korea Development Institute (KDI), and Seoul National University, which Vice Minister Park used as the basis for deciding on the scale of medical school expansion, he said, “The analysis included the increase in the proportion of female doctors and the difference in working hours between male and female doctors.” It is claimed that this expression is discriminatory against women.

In response to this, the Ministry of Health and Welfare refuted that it only explained the estimation method in the research report and did not mention anything such as ‘female doctors’ productivity is low’ or ‘female doctors’ working hours are low, which results in a shortage of doctors.’

In fact, the KDI report explained by Vice Minister Park actually presented scenarios such as an increase in the proportion of female doctors, differences in labor market exit by gender and age, and differences in labor productivity by gender and age.

On the 19th, the Korean Medical Association called on Vice Minister Park to resign, saying that he pronounced ‘doctor’ in an audible manner as ‘uisae’ while explaining the increase in the number of overseas doctors. ‘Uisee’ is an expression used to disparage doctors.

In response, the Ministry of Health and Welfare dismissed it as “just a mistake made while tired.”
