Frequently Asked Questions

Why don't more foreign students go to medical school?

Why is it so hard to recruit foreign doctors for residency programs?

Still, it can be difficult and costly to secure visas for foreign clinicians. That’s especially daunting for small, community-hospital-based residency programs — the type that tend to produce critically needed primary care physicians and doctors who end up practicing in underserved areas.

Do international medical graduates make better doctors?

International medical graduates “play a very important role, because we have had an insufficient number of U.S.-trained doctors for some time.” There’s also evidence that international medical graduates provide care that is just as good, if not better, than that of domestically schooled doctors.

How many medical graduates are non-US citizens?
