After weeks of protests by doctors in South Korea, the presidential office stated their decision regarding the topic, but also said they're still open for further discussion.

“We have not intended to review the Korean Medical Association (KMA)’s suggestion for a one-year halt on expanding medical schools and will continue to hold this stance in the future as well,” South Korea’s presidential office stated in a briefing regarding the expansion of 2,000 medical school seats on Apr. 8. The official also mentioned, “If the medical community presents scientific and rational grounds, along with a unified opinion, we are open to discussing it,” adding, “We are prepared to approach it with an open mind.”
