Residents who are currently in the process of completing graduate medical education (GME) will eventually become independently practicing professionals; therefore, the quality of GME is of enormous importance for our society. To improve the quality of GME in Korea, we, as young doctors, suggest that the government support funding for GME; make all possible efforts to ensure reasonable and sustainable working conditions for residents; implement adequate maternity plans; prohibit all kinds of unauthorized medical practice by other healthcare providers; and prevent all kinds of workplace violence toward residents. These measures to improve the quality of GME will surely benefit patient safety and the overall quality of healthcare in the future.
