Extract

I thank Drs Allman, Perelas, and Eiger for their excellent arguments in favor of continuing to offer postgraduate training in the United States to international medical graduates (IMGs). We clearly agree on a number of important points: that IMGs currently comprise a significant portion of the US physician workforce, that the current US medical education infrastructure is incapable of fully meeting the nation’s need for physicians, and that IMGs are a convenient (for our country) source of physicians for meeting this shortfall.
