The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of cultural disposition and self-efficacy on South Korean medical students’ suicidal ideation, using methods of cluster analysis and mediating effect analysis, supported by descriptive statistics. The researcher found that self-efficacy was lower in the “low cultural disposition” group than in the “mixed cultural disposition” group; that the individualistic cultural disposition was significantly higher in the suicidal ideation group than in the mixed culture disposition group; and that the higher the self-efficacy, the lower the suicidal ideation. Self-efficacy was also found to have a partial mediating effect in relation to cultural propensity and suicidal ideation. Therefore, self-efficacy was shown to be an important factor to include in suicide prevention education.
