Department of obstetrics and gynecology is sort of disliked one every application period... The number of applicants failed to meet the quorum for 7 years... Application rate has not been improved though the quota was decreased... Resident trainee of obstetrics and gynecology had exclusive charge on general ward during the night in only 33 hospitals out of 107 hospitals in December 2009 and no physicians of obstetrics and gynecology was on call in 25 hospitals (Fig. 3)... In addition, primary care in emergency of obstetrics and gynecology was possible by resident trainee or board-certified physicians of obstetrics and gynecology in only 50 hospitals out of 107 hospitals... On the other hand, nor resident trainee neither boardcertified physicians of obstetrics and gynecology participated in night duty of delivery room in 27 hospitals... Vaginal delivery is the representative procedure in practice of obstetrics and gynecology... However, the number of clinics or hospitals capable of delivery was continuously decreased from 2001 to 2008 (Table 2), comparing to 2000 only 60% of clinics or hospitals remained in 2008... Unlike teaching hospitals, closure of delivery room was continued in smaller then general hospital... One hundred twenty-five percent (median; range, 37% to 210%) of loss was reported in 9 hospitals in the data of income and expenditure of management of delivery room in 2008... On the other hand, the medical costs for vaginal delivery of Korea were remarkably lower than that of other countries... Human resources shortage and remarkably low medical costs lead to decrease of clinics or hospitals capable of delivery... Therefore, it is not difficult to predict growing shortage of human resources and medical facilities of obstetrics and gynecology... To break the vicious cycle, realistic medical insurance system is necessary.
