(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Seong-ho Seong-ho and Ji-hyeon Kwon = “What is the difference between a wife who is beaten and a husband who uses violence against his children, claiming that they will not be able to run away because of their children?”

The Emergency Response Committee of the Korean Medical Association held a regular briefing on the 22nd and introduced this type of analogy, arguing that it is the government, not doctors, that holds patients hostage.

Joo Su-ho, head of the emergency committee’s press and public relations committee, said, “Many doctors sent me messages after seeing the posts on Facebook, saying they had their own feelings,” describing doctors as “beaten wives,” patients as “children,” and the government as “violent husbands.” did.

Chairman Joo said, “It was the government, not the doctors, who took the patient’s life and health hostage to create this situation,” and added, “I am convinced that the government’s arrogance in believing that no matter how hard they push the doctors to leave the patient’s side caused this situation.” emphasized.

However, it is pointed out that it is inappropriate to quote the metaphor of “a wife who cannot run away” in a situation where more than 8,000 of the 13,000 residents have already left the hospital and a ‘medical crisis’ has occurred.

Chairman Joo argued that the government’s policy to expand the number of medical school students by 2,000 students is unfounded, and that the government’s explanation that it had discussed the scale of the increase several times with the Korean Medical Association was ‘false.’

Chairman Joo said, “The number of essential medical specialists is absolutely not small,” and “The reason they give up is because of legal issues (burden) and not being paid appropriately despite their hard work.”

Regarding the resident’s resignation and medical student’s leave of absence, he said, “I have never taken collective action,” and “How can giving up one’s future of one’s own free will because of disappointment with the government’s populist policy be a collective action and an illegal act?” I asked back.

He also refuted Seoul National University professor Kim Yoon’s recent statement on MBC’s ‘100 Minute Debate’ that “the annual salary of a specialist by the age of 35 is 300 million to 400 million won.”

He claimed, “We are currently conducting a legal review to raise questions about this statement. At 35 years old, he has just become a specialist, and it is not a fact that his annual salary is 400 million won.”

He continued, “Professor Kim was interviewed in 2017 and said, ‘The doctor shortage debate is boring and wasteful,’ and this is a claim that our doctors completely agree with. Now they are saying that we need to increase the number of doctors, but what kind of change of heart has there been?”

In response to Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myeong’s proposal to create an emergency response organization and consult with the Korean Medical Association, Chairman Joo said, “The number of medical school quotas is a matter of policy judgment, so it should not be made a political issue,” and “I will be honest about why specialists have no choice but to leave the hospital despite all kinds of criticism.” “If you are willing to listen, I will respond,” he said.
