With the Daejeonhyup non-captain system… “We need to cancel the increase in medical schools and discuss it again from the beginning.”

Government responds strongly, including ‘reviewing license cancellation’… Possibility of ‘struggle within the boundaries of the law’

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Jan-di and Oh Jin-song = Rather than taking immediate collective action, a resident group opposing the government’s expansion of medical school admissions capacity appears to be taking caution by first switching to an emergency response committee system.

Although the government is taking a breather, it is monitoring the situation as it believes that residents may go on a general strike or resign collectively at any time.

Some say that residents are seeking to fight within legal boundaries, such as refusing to renew their training contracts.

Is the medical community embarking on a prelude to collective action?

◇ Daejeonhyup, transition to ‘non-capital system’… I won’t announce collective action for now.

According to the medical community on the 13th, the Korean Medical Residents Association (Daejeon Association) decided at the online extraordinary general meeting held the previous day to resign from the executive branch, except for Chairman Park Dan, and to convert to an emergency response committee.

Daejeonhyup reported these results on its website that day, but did not disclose any future collective action plans.

In a statement released through social networking services (SNS) this evening, Chairman Park said, “I don’t know how to trust the government that threatens the young generation by mentioning business start orders and license cancellation,” and “Even now, the essential medical policy package and “I hope that the plan to increase the number of medical students by 2,000 students will be scrapped entirely and the discussion will be reconsidered from square one.”

The prevailing interpretation, both inside and outside the medical community, is that residents have entered ‘cautious mode’ first.

Despite the fact that Daejeon Cooperative has hinted at the possibility of taking collective action several times, it has remained silent about any specific ‘action plan’ other than the transition to a non-council system.

The fact that the government has announced a ‘hard-line response’ to doctors’ collective action in accordance with law and principles appears to be related to this.

The Ministry of Health and Welfare said that it would respond strictly to doctors’ collective actions, noting that medical licenses may be revoked if they do not comply with orders to start work, and issued an ‘order banning group actions and teachers of group actions’ to the Korean Medical Association (KMA). It’s a state.

In order to prevent a situation where residents resign en masse, an ‘order prohibiting the acceptance of collective resignation letters’ was issued to each teaching hospital.

In addition, the Ministry of Health and Welfare has established the ‘Doctors’ Collective Action Central Accident Control Headquarters’ (replicated version) to continuously inspect the scene.

Park Min-soo, Second Vice Minister of Health and Welfare, once again emphasized maintaining a hard-line stance, saying, “The government’s response to collective action is a natural measure to protect the lives and health of the people” at a heavy budget briefing on this day.

He added, “I am fortunate that the residents have not expressed a position that they will take collective action,” but added, “Because it is not confirmed whether they are taking collective action or not, we will continue to watch without letting down our guard.”

The medical community voices its opposition to increasing the number of medical schools and prepares for collective action.

◇ There is also an analysis that the state is ‘ready for struggle’… Key issues such as ‘whether or not to renew the training contract’

There is also an analysis that residents are not taking collective action ‘immediately’, but that they have shown their will to take action at any time with the change to the emergency system.

In fact, they are preparing and heating up the atmosphere. It can be said that the possibility of taking collective action, such as taking a collective hiatus or resigning, is wide open.

In particular, there are observations that residents are seeking ways to express their opposition to increasing the number of medical schools within ‘legal boundaries’.

It has been reported that some interns are considering leaving the hospital without taking the next step, residency, after the end of training, scheduled for the end of this month, if they are unable to submit a letter of resignation. Residents who have completed their residency and are about to sign a full-time residency contract are said to have similar concerns.

Currently, interns have a training contract with the hospital that specifies a training period of 1 year, and residents who have decided on a specialty have a training period of 3 to 4 years. This means considering not renewing the contract with the hospital at the end of each training period.

A professor at a tertiary general hospital said, “There is talk among residents, ‘Is it illegal to take some time off without renewing the contract?’” and added, “I am concerned about a large number of defections at the end of this month when training ends.”

The Ministry of Health and Welfare announced that it has already reviewed this situation and is preparing for it.

Vice Minister Park said, “Residents often sign contracts for the entire training period when they first start, rather than for one year,” and added, “It is believed that (the direction of not extending the contract) will not be easy to actually implement in the field.” “We will continue to work hard to persuade you to go together so that such a thing does not actually happen.”

Meanwhile, medical students have also begun discussions to respond to the government’s policy to expand medical school admissions.

The Korean Medical University and Graduate Medical School Student Association (KMA) held an online extraordinary general meeting at 6:30 pm on this day and discussed ways to respond to the government’s medical policy, such as increasing the number of medical schools.
