6415 Intern Doctors In South Korea Have Submitted Their Resignations

6415 intern doctors in South Korea have submitted their resignations. Thousands of doctoral interns in South Korea have submitted their resignations as a form of protest against the local government’s new policy. This resulted in a number of operations and hospital treatments being delayed. A total of 6415 intern doctors at 100 hospitals submitted their resignations as a form of protest against the South Korean government’s plan to increase the number of medical students.

This action was carried out because it was feared that the government’s new policy could endanger public health. The South Korean government plans to increase the medical school enrollment quota to 2000 doctors starting next year.

According to local health authorities, this is done because the number of doctors in South Korea is considered not proportional to the population, in fact the number of doctors in Ginseng Country is claimed to be one of the lowest in developed countries.
