This is a pet peeve of mine. Sick people should not have to deal with foreign docs they cannot understand. Also, lots of qualified Americans would love to be docs. So, build the med schools and train enough American docs.
What got my Goat was when Medicare cut funding for training doctors.
Thousands of residency training slots went away.
If you look at the number of training slots for new doctors it is not much different that say 6 or seven years ago.
Yet the aging of the population and the need for more doctors has expanded not lessoned.
I read somewhere that docs were retiring faster than they could be replaced yet the government is withdrawing funding for these training slots.
