By helping 1 doctor be able to get a job in this country equals saving few hundred lives . It’s the minority groups that’s are disproportionately effected , the diversity and the experience we bring to the table can perhaps help some of AMG’s and practicing doctors here .

Looks like change .org has no impact inspite of so many of us signing the petition . What other ways can we be able to make our voice heard ? To the lawmakers in the country ?
Reach out directly in January to the potus office ?
We all very capable And trained physicians .... if they could just validate our degrees and offer us liscence to work under supervision we are willing to put our best foot forward .
Don’t waste talented people to do trivial jobs . Please

Thanks for adding your voice.

I am signing it because I strongly believe that IMGs are capable individuals which can play a very important role to help and support frontline health care workers during this pandemic situation

It’s not like we are asking them that we will treat cancer patients or do highly skilled surgical procedures . To not be even able to help with primary care during a pandemic is a sin commited by the licensing agencies and injustice to humans inflicted with the disease unable to get the help they need .

Witnessed one the worst case health system in the world , being a highly developed country with all resources one can have , failed miserably to contain a wide spread contagion . Health care is not a business model , that’s what happens when they are run as corporations .
State licensing hurdles , employer hurdles all lead to this .restricting doctors do what they do best lead to this .gloating US is the best healthcare system is a laughing stock right now .
To say their trained doctors are the best is malarkey. The best of them are those who trained outside and migrated to this country . And to say some of our degrees and training is substandard is also big false statement . All the doctors irrespective are the top / best of the lot in any country period . So they the also highly skilled and able anywhere in the world . At the end of the day humans are humans any where in the world it’s the same ailments most of them go through . Medical training is all inclusive without borders . It’s basic human right to get health care and govts can not restrict that with red tape against skilled physicians .
I am all for physicians without borders . Make universal healthcare registry for all health care workers .
How can a doctor be substandard vs a PA or NP , just coz you trained else where . As a matter of fact medical degrees are course intensive outside of the US, with 5.5 yrs plus 1-2 yrs of clinical Experince mandatory .
