The South Korean government has launched a protest against the increase in admissions to medical schools, ordering doctors who went on strike to return to work.

Axar.az informs that this was reported by Reuters.

According to information, the action, which was also joined by professors, has been going on for months, forcing the government to take this step.

Under the law, doctors who violate a return-to-work order can face license suspension or other legal consequences.

South Korean President Yun Seok-yol assessed the doctors' strike as "disappointing":

"The government has no choice but to crack down on illegal acts of patient neglect."

It should be noted that the South Korean government has decided to increase the number of students admitted to medical schools from 2025 in order to overcome the shortage of experienced doctors in rural areas, as well as the demand for services caused by the rapid aging of the population. Many doctors are on strike from February 20 to protest the plan. Doctors argue that recruiting 2,000 extra students a year from 2025 will undermine the quality of services.
