    Such a large shortage of physicians yet some countries just make it so difficult to come back and be a medical doctor.

    I have read that by 2025 the USA will face a shortage of around 90,000 doctors. I know Canada’s doctor shortage is growing daily also. There are doctors around the world that would do anything to practice in the USA or Canada yet they make it so difficult for them.

    It seems like they would rather have less doctors than foreign doctors. I just dont understand why.

    Here is a good article about Canada’s doctor shortage worsening.
