    Hey,

    I'm from NY and I just had a site that can check the history of any NY doctor such as Legal Action against, Board Certifications, Date of License issued, and where they received their education. I found that a great deal of doctors (respectable and notable ones) went to medical school in places such as Guadalarja, Mexico , and Puerto Rico.

    Is it a lot harder now than it was years ago to get a respectable practice by going to a out of country Med. school? Are there any distinct discriminations now against doctors like that?

    Depends on who you ask. Personally a lot of the finest docs I know were trained (as far as med school was concerned) in India and one in the Phillipines. But you will see a lot of people on this forum who are obsessed (for lack of a better description) with prestige or at least perceived prestige that comes with going to a "top" medical school. Honestly I think the only people who really across the board give two sh-ts are premeds and academics.

    the puerto rico schools are US schools. they aren't like guadalajara and carib schools you know... alot of people think b/c its puerto rico that the grads are considered fmgs but they're not.

    and you know, fmgs are just a good of doctors as US docs. i think its not the school that makes the doc but the person. every book is the same, maybe in different languages but its the same stuff. the body doesn't change across countries. its up to you to know and understand everything you can about medicine and how to practice it to become a good doctor. not just where you went to school.

    so to answer you question if there are good schools out there, yes there are. everywhere.
