We have so far discussed about the for-profit nature of off-shore and federal loans used for many larger Caribbean medical schools. The article begins with stating that the Institute of Medicine reform of GME did not call for increased funding of residency programs. It has been stressed over the past few years that there is a physician shortage. The article goes onto highlight that the increasing number of US medical student graduates may eventually reduce the size and quality of applicants for offshore schools. Furthermore, offshore medical students may have difficulties in loan repayment. That being said, will these for-profit medical schools eventually go bust? Will fewer people opt to go into medicine overseas as a fear of not matching and increased debt?
