Qualified American physicians are being turned down for residency in favor of foreign-educated physicians

Washington, D.C. (May 26, 2022) - On this week’s episode of Parsing Immigration Policy, Kevin Lynn, Executive Director of Progressives for Immigration Reform (PFIR), joins us to discuss the displacement of Americans in high-skilled jobs, specifically in the field of medicine. Doctors are required to complete a post-graduate residency program in order to be licensed to practice medicine in the United States.

America faces a physician shortage, yet this spring 1,431 medical school graduates (7.2% of applicants) failed to match into a residency program at teaching hospitals in the U.S. At the same time, 4,356 foreign–trained doctors – over three times the number of jobless American medical school graduates – attained residency positions, at the cost of $150,000 per year per resident to the taxpayers.

I had my Doctor as my choice as my yearly health plan and she worked as part of a large multi-state health company/ Later I left the company I worked for and she setup a private practice so she could spend more time with her family. It worked best for both of us. I got good service at a good price. More Doctors need to think outside the large corporate box and go back to the way it was done in the past.

American Medical schools are making their students less employable by implementing political ideology, such as CRT and diversity inclusion equity DIE, into the curriculum. Making their students unemployable. Couple that with hospitals hiring foreign doctors for residency programs and the physician-patient relationship is being destroyed.
