2012 Modularization of Korea’s Development Experience
Medical Professional Retraining Program
Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea has transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience so unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secrets behind Korea’s rapid and broad-based development, which can offer invaluable insights and lessons and knowledge that can be shared with the rest of the international community. Recognizing this, the Korean Ministry of Strategy and Finance (MOSF) and the Korea Development Institute (KDI) launched the Knowledge Sharing Program (KS

Abstract

This report reviewed a retraining program for medical professionals in the mid-20th century which was done by the United States (US) to help the rehabilitation and development of Korea after Liberation from Japan and the Korean War, known as the ‘Seoul National University Cooperative Project’ or ‘Minnesota Project’. It initially began as a university reconstruction program. However, in this report, the program will be reviewed through the lens of a retraining program for medical professionals interested in health professional development in developing countries so they may gain precious insight that can be applied to their respective situations. For this purpose, the report analyzed the background, goal and objectives, implementation and adjustment strategies, and outcomes of the project.
Through the Japanese colonial era and the Korean War, the healthcare infrastructure of Korea was devastated, and the project played a pivotal role in re-establishing the health care system and medical education of Korea by reproducing the system of the US. (The rest omitted)
