There is an increasing shortage of physician-scientists in the United States, threatening future medical research. There are several factors that dissuade US medical graduates from entering into physician scientists careers. This article proposes that international medical graduates (IMGs) who have contributed to the physician work force in the under serviced rural health system could also be a great source to meet the increasing physician-scientist demand. Mechanisms to allow IMGs to enter into the physician-scientist career track in the United States are suggested.
- physician work force
- international medical graduates
- Conrad 30 program
