With many more domestic med students heading down the pipeline in the future, those educated in foreign med schools will undoubtedly feel the squeeze. My question is this: Is being a US citizen a benefit or stigma for acquiring residencies? How would a US citizen fare compared to a similarly qualified Canadian or someone from overseas? It seems that with more slots for US citizens opening up, fewer and fewer qualified Americans will be going abroad for med school. Will the matchability of USIMGS suffer more as a result of this due to the perception that they are less qualified for not getting into a domestic school? It seems that Canadians could be seen highly as there are armies of qualified Canadians students who aren't able to get into a Canadian school. Any ideas?
