A total of 2,402 positions will be open from January to September 2022. Aside from standing by during pandemics, this project aims to take the burden off medical workers that have been working since the pandemic started.

Among 2,402 positions, there will be 55 positions for doctors, 950 for nurses, 1,084 for public health staff to take care of home isolation patients, 9 for pharmacists, 269 for medical technicians, 6 for radiologists, and 29 for medical scientists.
