Ohio Shortage of primary care physicians in Ohio

Dont know but fear of IMGs being weeded out seems obscure after reading this article..OHIO is an IMGfriendly state ..and still short of primary care doctors..probably they will fill in with IMGS..Waiting eagerly for this year's NRMP results

this is good for us imgs. nowadays nobody wants to become primary care, small pay & twice-thrice the patient load. there are some programs now who grant incentives (100K bonus) to those practicing primary care for a certain number of yrs.

most of Ohio's programs require 6-12 month USCE for residency and OHIO is known to be one of the friendliest Carib-IMG. Guys dont lose hope and dont forget Carib-IMG friendly doesnt mean IMG friendly
