Foreign-Trained Doctors As Good As U.S.-Trained Counterparts
Date:8/3/2010

ncerns about the quality of medical education in other countries and the ability of an internationally trained doctor to pass licensing exams, Norcini said. More recent studies have shown those fears seem to be unfounded, with doctors trained in international medical schools passing the exams with as much success as U.S.-trained doctors, Norcini noted.

Doctors trained abroad who want to practice medicine in the United States have to undergo a rigorous screening and training process, including passing all of the same exams and meeting all of the requirements as those who get their degrees in this country.

Many graduates of medical schools in other countries had to overcome substantial barriers to getting their education, and have learned how to make do with less, Singhvi said.

"To talk about the quality of care of international medical grads is moot. What they go through is exactly the same training at the same hospitals for the same number of years and [they] take the same exams," Singhvi said. "On top of that, most of those who come from foreign countries have already learned so much and seen so much from their practical experience."

Singhvi, a gastroenterologist at Loma Linda University Medical Center in Loma Linda, Calif., has been practicing in the United States since 1977. His son and daughter are now doctors who trained in the United States.
