Dear readers,
 
I recently read this article about that discusses the difficult multi-year process a foreign physician must go through to receive a license to practice in the U.S., which includes having to repeat residency. A resident quoted in the story said repeating her residency is adding little to her career and she wishes she could skip it.
 
In light of the federal funding cap on residency positions, would it make sense to lift that requirement for foreign physicians so that the residency slot can go to a medical school graduate who may need it more? Let me know what you think.
 
Also, in observance of Thanksgiving, Residency Program Insider won’t be published next Friday. The next edition will arrive in your inbox on December 5. Thanks for reading!
