This study intends to examine the indicators of Korean medicine education that are directly required in the field, in the process of developing and rationalizing the second cycle of evaluation and accreditation standards for the Colleges of Korean medicine and present indicators to the Korean medicine education community. To this end, we conducted the Delphi survey on six Korean medicine education experts, and the second cycle evaluation and accreditation standards were developed after verifying the validity of the contents and through a public hearing on three experts. Based on the research results of this study, we make the following suggestions: First, the support of Korean medical education institutions should be considered. The Korean medical education institution operates the Korean medicine hospital under each institution's name. Thus, criteria for evaluation shall be considered according to the number of beds and the support of schools. Second, for the second cycle of evaluation, all six members of the evaluation committee were professors of Korean medicine; however, in the future, each group of the evaluation committee needs to be composed of an external curriculum and evaluation experts to seek the evaluation focusing on education. Third, it is necessary to include curriculum and evaluation experts in the development stage of education programs and institutional evaluation and accreditation standards. Fourth, the experts of the curriculum should be included as the members of the curriculum development team of the College of Korean Medicine. This study is meaningful as a study to improve the quality of Korean medicine education.
