Discussion from 6:30 PM on the 13th until past midnight… There is no specific conclusion

There is also the prospect that it will be difficult for medical students to take action as the residents’ collective action plan has not been revealed.

Next year, medical school capacity will be increased by 2,000 students.

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Jan-di and Oh Jin-song = Following residents, medical students also protested against the government’s policy of expanding medical school admissions and discussed countermeasures.

The Korean Medical University and Graduate School of Medicine Student Association (KMA) held an online extraordinary general meeting of delegates on the 13th and discussed collective action plans to respond to medical policies, such as the government’s increase in medical schools, from 6:30 p.m. to past midnight. .

The meeting, which was held with representatives from each university’s medical school in attendance, lasted well past midnight, but it was reported that no specific direction for collective action was concluded.

Even after completing the extraordinary general meeting at around 11:30 pm on this day, additional discussions continued at the internal task force (TF).

While the outline of what kind of collective action medical students will take has not been revealed, there are speculations that they may refuse national exams, refuse classes, or take leave of absence, as was the case in 2020 when the government pushed to increase the number of medical students.

However, this time, it is realistically impossible to refuse the national exam as the national exam for doctors has already ended last month and the successful candidates have been announced. The government also believes that the possibility of rejecting the national examination is not high due to the timing, but is watching the situation without ruling out the possibility that medical students will take collective action in a different direction.

In a situation where the Korean Medical Residents’ Association (Daejeon Medical Association), their ‘senior’, has not mentioned specific collective action, there is also a prediction that it will not be easy for medical students to immediately draw conclusions about collective action.

At the online extraordinary general meeting held the previous day, Daejeon Cooperative decided to resign from the executive branch, except for Chairman Park Dan, and to transition to an emergency response committee. They reported these results on their website that day, but did not reveal any future collective action plans.

Picket against expansion of medical school quota at the Korean Medical Association

The Korea Medical Colleges Association has been opposing the government’s increase in the number of medical schools, fearing a decline in the quality of medical education.

At the end of November last year, he said in a statement, “We urge the government to withdraw its unilateral medical school quota expansion policy,” and added, “We will never sit idly by when the government enforces an arbitrary policy and will strive to protect the future educational environment and future patients.” He also said, “

Meanwhile, the Medical Education Council, a medical education group, said in a statement that day, “Rapid attempts to increase the number of medical school seats will place a serious burden on the educational environment and trigger withdrawal of students in the natural sciences, life sciences, and engineering schools.” “We must take the social impact seriously and reexamine the scale, method, and timing of medical school expansion,” he argued.
