South Korea set to adjust medical reforms in bid to end walkout

19/4/2024 12:13
        South Korea's government is expected to announce on Friday it is willing to adjust plans to raise medical school admissions in a bid to end a walkout by junior doctors and in the wake of the ruling party's crushing election defeat, media reports said.
        
        The country's healthcare system is under pressure due to a prolonged stalemate between the government and doctors over plans to boost medical school admissions by 2,000 from 3,000 starting in 2025.
        
        On Thursday, some medical school deans suggested scaling back the increase by up to half and allowing universities flexibility to determine their quotas, as a potential way to reach a compromise.
        
        Prime Minister Han Duck-soo will convene an intra-agency meeting and is likely to accept that request, and hold a briefing to unveil the decision at around 3 p.m., the Yonhap news agency said, citing his office.
