An amendment to the Medical Law Enforcement Decree to give medical students who rejected the doctor’s national examination an opportunity to reapply will be decided at the Cabinet Meeting on the 12th.
The government plans to deliberate and decide on 11 presidential decrees, including partial amendments to the medical law enforcement decree, and general agendas at the 2nd state council meeting presided over by Prime Minister Chung Sye-gyun this morning.
The revised bill of the Enforcement Decree of the Medical Law is a follow-up measure as the government decided to give medical students who refused to take the state examination last year to reapply.
This revised bill is an exception to the case where the Minister of Health and Welfare acknowledges that it is necessary to urgently recruit medical personnel in order to supply and supply personnel smoothly in the medical field, the notification period for national examinations for medical personnel can be shortened. The current law stipulates that the public announcement period of the doctor’s office is 90 days. The revised bill will be implemented immediately after publication (promulgation) in the official gazette after the resolution of the State Council and the President’s approval. Previously, the government announced that the “2021 Practical Examination for the State of the Doctor” will be held twice in the first half and the second half. The first half test is scheduled to be implemented at the end of this month when the revised bill of the medical law enforcement decree is promulgated.
The reason that the government gave medical students an opportunity to reapply on a national basis was due to the intensified shortage of medical personnel following the third epidemic of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19). However, some civic groups and political circles are opposing the opportunity to retake other national examinations for reasons of equity.
