I dont have a subscription so i couldn't read the whole article.
But from the link you sent still bothers me.
I remember Kaplan's Dr. Conrad Fisher kept telling the students to finish and start applying fast and efficiently as possible because in a few years it'd be extremely hard for an IMG to match with the exponential increase in american colleges.

I hope someone has some knowledge on this issue and can spread some light on this??

That is why we petitioned and asked congress to ask medical schools to increase the number of residancy programs.
A lot of us (Americans) are studying out of country and we are using student loans from USA. We have to pay it back some how.

You can't sign the petition unless you are resident or citizen of USA (And registered voter).
Plus the deadline to sign has already passed.

I have no way to confirm that with anyone around me. You can email NBME directly.

By the way, Nothing is set in stone. With Obama health care reform things can change.

couple of months back Sabio or some other admin posted an article highlighting that there will be an increase in the number of IMG in the coming years or at least there won't be any dramatic cut down in their number ..... don't know what to believe then ..... personally I don't think so they can stop this all of a sudden..... hope Sabio can clear the confusion
