Dr Yoo Suk-Chang(1900-1972) has been praised for his contribution to the development of the Korean society as an educator and an agricultural reformer as well as a physician. This paper describes his medical career mainly his contribution to establish and administrate the Min-Jung Hospital(The People's Hospital) and publish a medical paper entitled Bokun Sibo(The Doctors' News) in the Colonial Period I appreciate such his effort as the embodiment of his idea "medical care for the people" and the medical reform in that period I think his services as a physician correspond well with the activities against Japanese imperialism in his early age and the contribution to the education and agricultural reform in his late age. I stress that his medical achievement should not be supposed to be only his own because it is not possible without the help of all his supporter-colleagues and the people.
Key Words: Yoo Suk-Chang Min-Jung Hospital(The People's Hospital) Bokun Sibo(The Doctors' News) Medical Care for the People
