“If you leave your patients to oppose a government policy despite knowing what your collective action would cause, that can't be justified at all," Park said. “We appeal to trainee doctors to return to patients. An act of endangering the lives of patients to express your opinions is something that you must not do.”

Easy for you to say as you dont work in the hospitals and dont have to deal with the issues the doctors do daily.

Increase the number of medical students

I don't see how that is even suppose to be a issue. Firstly don't the youth get to decide on their own if they want to enter med school or not? They pay for the fees too no less. Is a costly study and require hard work.

If they can succeed and has the potential to become future doctors, then how can they be denied to try this career path? The current doctors fear of losing their income? What kind of selfish reasoning is that? Is a free market. Can you even forbid someone to go after their dreams?

I feel these doctors are just only thinking of themselves and fear they lose their high earnings by trying to keep the number of available doctors low.
