标 题: Foreign-Trained Doctors As Good As Those In The US.
发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Wed Aug 4 13:34:46 2010, 美东)

The Los Angeles Times (8/3, Dennis) "Booster Shots" blog reported, "Some US
patients -- or even fellow doctors -- might be less than comfortable with a
foreign-born physician who didn't graduate from a US medical school." But
according to a newly published study in Health Affairs, "they shouldn't be."
That assertion is based on an analysis of "244,153 hospitalizations
of patients with congestive heart failure or acute heart attack," the
Baltimore Sun (8/3, Walker) "Picture of Health" blog reported. Investigators
eventually discovered that physicians "trained abroad provide medical care
as good as that offered by US-trained physicians." On the other hand, "
Americans who trained overseas had higher patient death rates."
Specifically, the "percentage of in-hospital deaths for congestive
heart failure was 3.4% for domestically trained doctors and 3.1% for
internationally trained physicians," Modern Healthcare (8/3, Robeznieks)
reported. "For foreign-trained doctors who were not US citizens during
medical school, the rate death was 3%; for US citizens who trained abroad,
it was 3.5%. For heart attack patients, the in-hospital death rate was 13.1%
for domestically trained doctors, and 12.7% for those trained abroad."
The team at the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical
Education and Research "offered two possible reasons the Americans who went
to foreign medical schools might not perform as well as doctors trained in
the United States, or as well as foreign-born doctors," the New York Times (
8/3, D7, Grady ) reported. "One is that many of the Americans who study
medicine elsewhere do so because their grades and test scores were too low
to get into medical school in the United States -- so they may be less
capable in the first place. Another possibility is that some of the overseas
medical schools Americans attend may not be up to par."
Bloomberg News (8/3, Wechsler), the Wall Street Journal (8/3, Wang)
"Health Blog" and HealthDay (8/3, Goodwin) also covered the study.
