They are acting in their own selfish interrest. The lower classes pay the externalities of mass immigration and wage pressures while they dine on the greater economic growth.

Actually the H1Bs work cheaper, so they can afford 2 or 3 of them to replace a homegrown doctor.

Same thing has happened in the software business, except you don't even have to bring them into the US. They telecommute.

I didnt mean that. I meant they almost appear to have been ready, if some big crisis like this just happened to come along, so we might more easily accept their ideas, which were actually meant to further subvert our society, culture, traditions even more than they are already are trying to do. Kind of sneak in as many un-American ideas and people as possible now, to replace our citizens/make America less American. IDK - just a feeling.

To work in US medical system you need a license which can only be obtained through completing a residency. Every single imported doctor would require several years to actually become a doctor instead of a resident.

Exactly. What the fuck are these blowhards talking about. It's an utterly ridiculous argument they're making. There aren't enough residency slot for American students as it is. Plus, states are raising the requirements for people to get licensed as nurses, in most states you have to have a bachelors to become licensed as an RN (instead of an associates).

The President was talking about how this situation showed how we need strong borders and be tougher on immigration so they are pumping out this ridiculous article. GTFO

HughGRection 15 points ago +15 / -0

We would have more medical professionals if people weren't wasting their educations on Marxist "social justice" degrees and then complaining about how they can't afford to pay their debts.

4
Savetherepublic2 4 points ago +4 / -0

We would have more doctors if the residency match system wasn't so completely retarded. There are over 1,000 medical students graduating each year with an MD degree that can't see patients because they have to do a residency in a hospital first, which is typically 3+ years of additional training, yet there aren't enough residencies to give out to everyone who graduated with a degree!

So...yeah...at least four years of school down the drain unless they try to match again year after year and get lucky and match. But during the years they don't match, they aren't receiving hands-on learning or being trained to be a physician and aren't using their education, so what they learned in school slowly goes away. Many don't match at all. Wasting nearly 500K on their educations.

Over the past five years over 5000 MDs didn't get trained. That's the issue.

Maybe look at Americans and accept them into medical schools.

Maybe stop discouraging medical professionals with BS paperwork and malpractice lawsuits...

How about we unfuck our college/university system to make going to medical school and nursing school more affordable? We can even take it further down to elementary, junior high and high school and stop pushing bullshit leftist propaganda that brainwashes and gaslights our young ones into going to college for worthless degrees such as gender studies. We have the people here in America. We have to begin changing our priorities in order to become self-sufficient in many areas.

HumblePig 1 point ago +1 / -0

Students with a sincere interest and aptitude should be allowed to begin 'majoring' in highs chool. For example, first aid classes could involve some fundamental nursing experience for capable and interested students. For students with an interest in mechanical things, plumbing, basic car stuff like changing tires or oil, how diesel fuel is different from regular, the basics of what an engine is... Make trade skills worth academic credit. Maybe help towards a license in certain fields.

There's all this "no child left behind" crap for bringing up our lowest but what are we doing to encourage and invest in our best and brightest instead of saying "Oh, they're smart, they'll figure it out"?

Gifted children get used to not having to try, to not getting rewarded for what they can do, and when they do finally come up against a challenge, it flattens them, they settle into an easy mediocrity, or worse, decline. And we don't recognize children with aptitudes in something besides sitting quietly and regirgitating facts as gifted. I suspect a lot of natural mechanics, plumbers, and electricians are missing their calling for it being something you need to pursue on your own time and dime.

Shit like this will lead to a brain drain of medical professionals from places like South Africa which is nationalizing their healthcare.

Such is the leftist playbook:

  3. Use the problem they created as justification for another "solution" and blame the right

SteelDriver 1 point ago +1 / -0 (edited)

It started with the National Firearms Act of 1934, as a response to the surge in crime related to Prohibition. Important note about the NFA in 1934 - this was the first incidence of major legislative action on the part of the NRA. The original draft of the NFA also targeted handguns, but the NRA went into action and helped to convince legislators that such action was not in their best interest. In 1968, the Gun Control Act was added in response to the high profile political assassinations at the time. There are several intermediate addenda (the link has most of the major points), but the NFA and GCA are the two big ones.

Or... hold on... or we could stop prioritizing foreigners (looking at you nurses) that BARELY speak English and pushing them through nursing school while Americans (let's be honest, whites) get passed over for admittance into training courses because we're white.

Nursing is considered "oversaturated" and yet I'm always hearing about nursing shortages and overworked nurses. Stop prioritizing foreigners and hire the Americans who are trying to get into these programs only to be turned away. We have enough Americans to do these jobs.

My wife is going back to school for medicine and I'm planning on making the jump from the IT world to medicine once I get my goal score on the MCAT (nothing below a 520 is acceptable for me) - the last thing we need is more competition with people who are only there to fill a quota.

Medical school's have capped seats, and after graduation there are also capped residency positions. The reason we have a shortage of doctors is because of this, not because of a lack of wanting to become doctors by aspiring American students today.

How in the fuck does this shit continue to get perpetuated. Journalists at these Tier 3/4 institutions either have IQ's <85 or Stage 4 metastatic TDS. Correction, they probably have both.

Would it not be better if those Drs stayed to help their own countries or is that bigoted to think that way?

The demonrats and m5m are going to politicise and drag that out as long as possible

The worst thing would be if they drug this out until November, and convinced the country to vote from home.

The rigging would be unprecedented. This is their ultimate goal. Look at how demonrat run states like Virginia are preemptively closing down until June. THEY WANT THE VIRUS TO STICK AROUND AS LONG AS POSSIBLE

Trump and friends has to break the narrative and get the economy rolling again before September/October.

That is such l bull crap. My nephew is soon becoming a doctor what he has to go through to get there is unbelievable. We need to train more nurse practitioners who are more doing a lot of work. Most people when they visit a doctor are being sent to get tests etc. My 5 last visits to the clinic was completely handled by the nurse practitioner.

Is anyone else a little uncomfortable with these stats?

The US health system already relies heavily on immigrants, who make up 17 percent of all health care workers and more than one in four doctors.

Are the standards the same as US healthcare workers? Are they properly vetted?

Yes because everybody practicing medicine in the US is held to the same standards

We could fight COVID-19 if more Americans became doctors instead of social justice pushing j-school bros who write lies for a living for Vox.

I'll tell you what, If Indian doctors are like Indian H1B computer people, and there's no reason to think otherwise, we all need to steer clear of that shit. H1B's are infecting all our infrastructure with their shit code.

This article is Leftist pandering run amok. Rochester NY has a top three medical field within it. I'm sure there are doctors and medical professionals working their ass off in NY right now, and they have some of the best research and knowledge in the entire country.

Also, as a resident there, guess what, U of R Medical has a gigantic MERIT BASED immagrants. I Uber for fun/pocket money, and I drove probably twelve car loads of Chinese/Korean students who were going to the airport to go back home. Also, a good Indian population along with some Russian and South American.

A good portion of the people I talk to are genuine and here toake a better living. I ask them how they view American students, and the "woke" progressive culture they take part in, and I'd say the universal answer is that American Liberals don't know how good they actually have it. Meeting genuinely good people and hearing their backgrounds definitely conjures up specific feelings of luck and gratitude for being born and American. It's cool to hear people speak about their upbringing, cuisines, and home town. A Vietnamese student dodging his government and pursuing Physics. America offers those sorts of opportunities for legitimate Immigrants, and the news still tantrums about racism more than racism actually occurs in the country. It's to instill fear.

The powers at be don't want people connecting and UNITING. Perhaps that's why the President has been preaching unity since election night?

"When these Indian doctors are finishing up their training in the US, they’re seeing that they can get a green card in Australia, Canada, and UK" But they come to America because they can make a decent living with a private health care system. Fuck Yeah

actually i m all for that if they are qualified medical professionals. That's sort of immigrants we want. Don't buy into the whole anti immigrants. We don't want illegals but legit immigrants.

I am for legal immigration too, but against wholesale displacement of critical professional sectors of our fellow countrymen.

Colleges could be incentivized to increase the numbers of new American doctors or programmers, instead of the bullshit degrees that these (federally subsidized) institutions are pumping out.

The artificial cap on medical residencies by the AMA needs to end if we ever want to get serious about our medical doctor shortage.

An association of doctors are of course going to limit the supply of doctors.

And don't give me an "muh quality of care" argument either. The AMA regularly endorses NPs and mid-levels having increased licenses to practice more traditional MD care because they're "overburdened." But God forbid we increase the # of residencies to lift that burden!
