They can study months, years, for USMLE. And they are smart. They can certainly outscore American-mainland rejects, who resort to Caribbean for-profit schools.
Many US-IMGs from many caribbean schools have higher mortality rates.
If you read the study it says both AMG AND IMG have worse outcomes than FMG.
Per the study: FMG > AMG/IMG.
Many of these people had to get into medical schools in countries where it's a lot harder than here. Then they had to pass exams emphasized in that country - followed by passing exams in the US - in a non native language many times. If you're good enough to do that, I'd be more than happy to have you as my doctor.
If someone does my job better than me, the world doesn't owe me that job.
