The purpose of educational effort for career planning in medical school is to help students develop identity as a competent physician and to assist them in selecting their future career properly. To achieve the above, the specific education programs for career plan together with an individual counselling and problem solving approach are required. We proposed an education model for career planning in Gachon Medical School which would be directed by cooperative system consisted of medical school, faculty mentor and student counselling office. Career education should not be limited to several lectures or short-term counselling, but it requires a continuous and consistent program implemented throughout 6 years of medical school life. At the same time, an opportunity to explore future career and to consult their problems in accord with needs and characteristics of individual students must be provided. Further study should be directed to examine the usefulness and problems of this education model. In addition, a persistent attention to the problems in career planning of medical students and efforts to solve them is needed.
