Thank you all who participated in this lively discussion. So far we have found various resources to garner more data on Caribbean medical schools as well as discussed what prospective applicants need to know prior to applying. Our major point of discussion has been the lack of new residency positions. And although there are increasingly more US-IMGs, it will not amount to much unless there are more residency positions. With the potential of private funding for residency positions, I would like to end our discussion by answering the question posed by the article. Are US-IMGs a boon for the workforce? Will they eventually replace non-US IMGs (foreign medical graduates)? Also, is it possible for the same for-profit organizations that own the major caribbean schools, to open associated residency positions? Lastly, should caribbean students be limited to primary care residency given that they obtain federal student loans?
