U.S./Foreign training didn't affect care


Quality of care provided by foreign-trained physicians is no different than tha provided by U.S. trained physicians, according to a new study.

The quality of care provided by foreign-trained physicians is no different than that provided by physicians trained at U.S. medical schools, according to a study published in the August issue of the journal Health Affairs.

The study analyzed 244,153 hospitalizations of patients in Pennsylvania with congestive heart failure or acute heart attack who were treated by either a U.S.-trained or foreign-trained doctor who specialized in family medicine, internal medicine, or cardiology. Patients of foreign-born international medical graduates had the lowest death rates, while those of U.S.-citizen international graduates had the highest.
