한국의료분쟁조정중재원 박국수 원장

It is my honor to extend my greeting to you. 

I am the president of Korea medical dispute mediation arbitration agency(K-medi), Park kook-soo.

These days, due to generalization of medical service, diversification and aging population, there have been many disputes in regard of medical malpractice

However, seeing as how medical field is professional area, it is very difficult to prove the causes of malpractice, causation and negligency. Therefore, both of patients and healthcare providers have suffered from them a long time

To thoroughly resolve aforementioned issue, the first legislation was introduced in 1988 after much discussing them. After experiencing many ups and downs, Act on remedies for injuries from medical malpractice and mediation of medical disputes has finally been established in 2011. After years of preparation, the Korea medical dispute mediation and arbitration agency (K-medi) has been established in April.2011.

As the act has recently been revised applying to the medical malpractice that caused death or coma conditions over one month or first rating disorder, the mediation automatically began. It will be good for both of patients and healthcare providers.

We, all of the K-medi staffs including me, will make an effort to resolve medical malpractice cases fairly and rationally for both patients and healthcare providers and have them recover from issues caused by medical malpractice. 

Furthermore, we will make an effort to establish the system of trusty medical dispute mediation and arbitration through correct and kind counselling, professional and objective investigation and fair and rational mediation.

Are you suffering from issues caused by medical malpractice? Please visit our K-medi. We will be your reliable supporter. 

Thank you.
