OBJECTIVES: To evaluate undergraduate medical education in Korea, we investigated educators' satisfaction. Also analysis of the factors affecting educator satisfaction was intended. SUBJECTS: Of the entire educators(4,683 persons) of all medical schools, 585 persons were sampled systematically, based on the published list of medical educators. Of the sampled target, 275 persons(47.5%) responded. METHODS: We developed the questionnaire, asking educators' satisfaction on six categories of medical education in terms of educational input and process; educator, facilities and equipments, educational contents, educational method and skill, the evaluation of students, and the performance of students. The questionnaire were mailed to each educator and returned back for analysis. RESULTS: Overall satisfaction of educators was rather low. In particular, educators were more dissatisfied with avaliability of assistant personnel and general environment for education. As for the contents of medical education, they were more dissatisfied with the clinical training in bedside setting. Geographically, educators in the 'kangwon' and 'chungcheong' area had more discontent than others. Educators of private schools were more satisfied with the facilities than those of public ones. CONCLUSION: It is necessary to develop continuous program that evaluate and improve the quality of medical education. Among them the clerkship and general environment for education would be focused. Periodic assessment of educators' satisfaction would be a tool to ensure more concern for quality of medical education.
