RESPONSES / COMMENTS - (NON-CLINICAL) - PART 1


RE: Educational Commission of Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) (Robert Bijak, DPM)

From: Steven J. Kaniadakis, DPM



I do not agree with the posting by Robert Bijak, DPM. Donald Trump said, 'How are we going to treat everyone in America when we don't have enough doctors now to treat every American?" As much as I regret to quote him, he drives home an interesting point. Will this mean more foreign medical graduates in America encouraged by our government? In 1978, President Carter spawned "offshore" medical schools and opening residencies to foreign grads. If podiatry thinks we do not have enough residencies now, then just wait and see how "change" in healthcare will change our profession. Think about this. Will podiatry need more American schools and residencies?
