tell me you didn't attend the online free dr conrad fischer class yesterday?
i am thinking that maybe thats where i heard something frightening like this, can't remember the specifics.
not to trivialize things but we must realize policies will always change and somethings not in the way we want, but we will do our best and leave the impossible to God!

Stupid Fear tactics.

IMGs will probably be slowly faded out because many schools are increasing seats but not as soon as 2013, or probably in this decade.

I rotated in the same hospital as Dr.Fisher in NY. He told all of us, this year is the last year for IMG match.

Default let it be..

Well i also read somewhere along this lines but i am not sure weather it is reliable or not . And it will happen but i am not sure it will happen next year. Read the article in this link. At the moment US need IMG to fill the residency spots. But 3 year down the road ( around 2015) they will have enough US graduates to fill those spots.


Below is the article. Very good one . It will give you an idea about how things will span out over next few years and it is very reliable source.


http://im-for-imgs.com/2011/11/



And each year number US medical students are increasing gradually.


It is a blog of an associate program director. But it is true that each and every year it is gonna be more difficult. So i personally dont think it will happen from next year, but it is gonna be more competitive for sure. Just my 2 cents.

The other thing .. first to be affected in the budget scenario are the family doctor because no more senior residents services will be available, so this will decrease visits to family doctors...cuz most of elderly here depend on medicare and medicaid support ....(no free services...no visits to family doctors..less income to family doctors ...unless patients can afford their own health insurance) as AP press and USAtoday convey in their website.

http://yourlife.usatoday.com/health/...ors/51442106/1


This is as far what I know.

The gov need to pay back their debt....and manage the deficit.

So I have witnessed till now 3 signs.

But I'm not sure about the education program.

Nurse practitioners and Osteopaths. thats it. Bye Bye IMG. USA is closing its doors to IMG's as of next year.

I called many, many programs, and my PD and other PD here in chicago have told me IL, PA, TX, MI, LA, AL and many more states are cutting funding


stop giving false hope. dont waist your time. quite while your ahead. stay in your own country.

PD's have told me they dont want an IMG from anywhere. even the US born Caribbean grads are doomed.

RUMOR

check the links

http://boards.medscape.com/forums?12...391e!comment=1

say what ever you like to say. I have spoken to PD's in the hospital I am at right now. Is over for IMG's. If you attend a Caribbean Medical School and got your BSc, MSc, PhD from US or Canada you still have a chance but for everyone else is over.

but again do your best, be nice and maybe you wont feel so down, is not your fault, is the goverments fault. they spend too much money.

These are hard times for us medical students and the country as a whole. Years of mismanagement (Republican and Democratic) are taking a toll. Now we are at a tremendous junction. But, if we can help shape our future we need to do it now. I sense a feeling of doom in a lot of people. We need to put this in perspective. We are fretting for a debt and our livelihood. Just lets think that right now there is people in the world dying without any hope of help. Whatever the outcome of this bill is not going to be worse than being in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban or dying in Siria fighting Assad. As a great climber said in the Peruvian Andes, after 4 days without any food, "get a grip lad".

Dude will you stop philosophizing here. Lemme see, why don't you just fret for yourself instead of giving statements like "do it in your own country" or "IMGs u guys are just done." "Get a grip" I believe. Why don't you? Dude you wanna do some help quote some facts. Don't give unsolicited philosophical advise. If always, the only wonderland door for your miseries is to think u r atleast better than those in al Qaeda or whatever u carry on.

Hi all, I’ve read all the comments and I’d like to say few things
1- Most of these are predictions; no one knows what is going to happen.

2- IS match 2013 going to be tougher than past matches, 100% sure …. Every year the match is getting harder , it is no secret , but there is no way that the number of matched IMG to drop from 40% to 5% in one year …. Matched IMG % is going to drop (but only if they really cut the GME fund which might not happen) by how much drop?? again no one can tell you.

3- If they really cut the GME fund, the US will have a very severe shortage in physicians. see these from AMA website
https://www.aamc.org/newsroom/newsre...70/100930.html

http://www.ama-assn.org/amednews/201...0/edca0110.htm

In 2015, there will be around 62000 shortage, 33000 of them are in primary care , that this shortage will force the government to increase the matched IMG % .

4- I think what is happing in US is like what happened in UK in 2004 …. In 2004 or 2005 the UK stopped accepting non-EU citizens for residency (it become very difficult for non-EU citizens) , around five years later the physician shortage forced there government to back up on this discussion. Actually, from what I heard, the residency becomes somehow easier than before 2004.

So in nut shell, NO ONE KNOWS what is going to happen. Take your chances, if you want, you have the same chances just like others. Have a backup plan; at least something can keep you alive during these predicted MATCH GREAT DEPRESSION ….. then reapply again when it is over, that's what I am planning to do.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL

People are too dumb to spread such rumors without solid evidence and I always wonder how these people got through their med school with this level of intelligence.

Is it true?

Please help..
Hi - this is simply not true, not sure who provided this information but if you go to the NRMP site you can review a lot of data that indicates a very strong story for IMG (US and non-US) residency applicants.
