The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program of Korean medical doctors had problems that did not resolve for many years. The primary concern of this study is to examine the problems of the CPD program of Korean medical doctors and to suggest practical guidelines to resolve such barriers. The findings show that the major barrier for improving CPD program is the lack of total quality management. Such lack came from insufficient manpower to plan, execute, and evaluate the CPD programs. The insufficient financial support aggravated the situation. In order to enhance the CPD program, various problems in planning, executing, evaluation stage must be dealt. Specific plans and resolutions in each stage have been suggested.
Key Words: Continuing Professional Development (CPD), Total quality management
