It also examines the training system for young physicians and the sources of engagement, and details the difficulties in training emergency physicians. In the latter part of the lecture, the new challenges created by the new specialist system and work style reforms, and the resulting difficulties in maintaining a balance between supply and demand in emergency medicine, will be relived through a crisis in a rural emergency center. The purpose of the case is to develop the discussion from micro to macro level to examine the problems and solutions of emergency medicine and the decision making to realize sustainable emergency medicine based on the contents up to this point.
