Policy Director Sung Tae-yoon, briefing on medical school expansion

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kwak Min-seo = Presidential Office Policy Director Seong Tae-yoon said on the 20th, “If the number of medical school students is not increased now, a situation may arise where we really need to increase the number even more in the future.”

Director Seong appeared on SBS News that day and said, “Our current medical situation makes it inevitable to increase the number of medical school students.”

Director Seong said, “While the U.S., France, Japan, etc. are increasing the number of medical school students, our country has not increased the number of students for about 30 years, and rather, the number of students from 19 years ago has remained reduced,” adding, “Actual estimates show that about 3,000 students (increased number of students) every year. ) Even though it was necessary, the decision was made to increase the number of troops at around 2,000,” he explained.

In response to the point that increasing the number of medical school students does not lead to solving essential medical problems, he responded, “I do not mean to create a trickle-down effect by simply increasing the number of medical school graduates. However, my view is that a certain number of doctors must be secured as an essential condition.”

He went on to say, “The medical community should never risk the people’s health and life, and it will never be allowed to lead to a situation where patients are neglected.” “I sincerely ask you to do so,” he said.
