    International Medical Schools and US nationalized healthcare

    Advertisements



    I have suspended my plans to go to medical school because of (1) the current trend of states following the California list, and (2) the possibility of nationalized medicine and how it will possibly affect medical education. As for the first reason, unless states discontinue in their assinine procedure of adopting the list without checking out offshore schools, then it seems to me that no schools, outside of the big (3 or 4?) are safe. As to reason (2), I would like some feedback from other posters on your opinions on the possible effects that a change in our healthcare system will have on medical education and jobs, especially to offshore graduates.

    Yeah, what Tipton said.

    Also, are you operating under the assumption that the Big Four are the only international medical schools with universal US approval? Because honestly, that's just silly. Ireland remains an outstanding (albeit expensive) option, as are the Western European schools (if you speak the language). The English program at Jagiellonian University, in Krakow, Poland, has both 50-state approval and student loans.

    Expand your vision a little bit and you will see plenty of opportunities. Medicine is not going away, and 100% nationalized health care is neither feasible nor likely.

    If you're worried about the fed taking over then the cali list shouldn't be one of your worries.

    The fed doesn't follow that list...and if your school isn't on the cali list you can still thumb your nose at them and practice in Cali at federal facilities.

    The fed looks at the usual things like the ECFMG.....just go to their agency web pages.
