But I heard a few years ago that the government wanted to limit the hospital funding for training IMGs. Are they making some new policies on this issue? The reason being... I really don't want to go to SGU now, and four years later find out that no US hospital would take any IMGs. Could someone shed some light on this issue? Thanks!

Dr. Kimberli Cox or Dr. Cuts would definately know more about this. I suggest you send them a PM.

here are the facts....

~16,000 us graduates a year

around 21-22,000 residency positions a year.

if you go to St. Georges, pass your boards you will get a residency.

the problem is in getting the top specialities. they tend to get people in primary care residencies. but if you do really well all around, it is very possible to land a good residency if you want to.

This is a perineal:
The bottom line is that in 1996 there was a serious movment to cut IMGs. If Failed miserably. I have a copy of the april 2 1999 NY Times article that explains why http://travel.to/sgusom
Find appropriate link
Long and short: IMGs are necessary and here to stay.
