what we probably need to do is try to to control malpractice lawsuits and lower down education fees for medical school then we can have more docs.
yes, there are some scholarships
/financial assitance but in reality, it is hard to acquire financial assistance if your parents income are considered "fine".
also,some people abuse the system and and file lawsuits for purely monetary gain..
roy fokker, very good point...
why would our country let foreign docs in? because they were and are needed in the first place.and yes it is not cheap labor, income wise we all earn the same. I still stand by my previous post re: this matter
i strongly believe my reasons because i experienced it first hand.My husband has a lot of foreign doc collegues that are highly respected in their field and income wise it is the same.
again , more monetary assistance to the deserving for medical school and control/screen malpractice lawsuits(ongoing process) ..maybe then we will have more medical students.
