In Reply to: Dr. Rock, what do you think about the shortage of doctors. posted by miho on April 22, 2010 at 06:02:07:
metropolitan areas are almost saturated. Underserved areas still need docs but when they recruit docs they don't have in their mind that some will go to underserved areas. in Canada the shortage of docs has existed for years. They have not done anything to fix it because those in power like to control the job market. To answer your question, I don't think it will change much for IMGs. Recruiters think about their program, not about the shortage. If anything, they will try to come up with more medical schools and will increase the funding for those so they can have more Am-trained docs to fill in.
