Nowadays, medical education has become a topic of wider discussion among many nations, including Korea. Medical education is a continuum of learning beginning with entrance into medical school and ending with retirement from active practice. Its purpose is to prepare medical students, resident physicians, and practicing physicians to apply biological and behavioral sciences for the prevention and the treatment of human disease. Medical education also includes ethical standards, thoughts of behavior science, and concept of services for others rather than personal gain. As members of the medical profession, all physicians must accept the responsibility for maintaining high standards of medical education. This must be grounded in highly qualified medical education system & professional medical teacher. To gain a better understanding of the current medical education status in Korea and to ascertain the current position of our school (Dong San Medical Center, Keimyung University) among the 28 medical school , the authors compared & analysed the past 10 years of medical curriculums based on published Korean medical education journals retrospectively.
