ABSTRACT

A series of recent medical scandals in South Korea has led to calls for stricter regulation of medical licensing in this country. While the Korean government has recently revised its regulations, disagreements remain among the various stakeholders. This article explores the regulatory systems in Japan, the USA, the UK, and Canada to identify the most appropriate principles for self-regulation based on medical professionalism. The Japanese Medical Association has been working to improve its certificate system for specialists since 2011. The USA, the UK, and Canada have independent regulatory bodies to protect patients and improve medical professionalism and practice. This article explains how the licensing system for Korean physicians should be regulated.
