Most of the medical schools are confronted with various changes to medical curricula in Korea. Some of them already established a steering group to plan a new curriculum. The study's target is the graduates who had undertaken their 6 year-medical course of Medical School at K University. The purpose of the study is to ascertain how well the medical course they had undertaken had equipped them for practice. The questionnaire explored the level of factual content, the adequacy of their skills training, and the development of attitudes and personal attributes during the course. A total of 204 graduates replied, a response rate of 67.5%. The results can be summarized as follows. The graduates' views on the preclinical course they had undertaken at school of medicine show that they felt there were 'too much' anatomy, biochemistry, and pathology. Their views on the clinical course were shown relatively to be adequate level of factual content in comparison with preclinical course. The graduates' views were also sought concerning the help they had received in acquiring certain skills during their education. Only in the area of 'History-taking' and 'Physical examination' did most feel that the skills had been 'well covered' or 'partially covered'. A part of the survey focused on the attitudes and personal attributes that it was hoped medical students would have acquired by the time they qualified. In most cases the respondents did feel that they had acquired the 15 items' attributes listed, at least partially, by the time they had qualified.
