A co-worker’s father is in the hospital. He mentioned that the primary care physician had perhaps let his condtion go untreated for some time, allowing it to get worse and put him in the ICU. This led to jokes about where the doctor trained, which led us to Caribbean medical schools.
- What does it take to practice in the US after graduating from one of these schools?
And some opinion:
Would you trust a doctor if you discovered s/he attended that kind of school? Is the training below par, or just the admission standards? My primary care doctor is a DO not an MD, which is I suppose rather non-traditional. She is a fine doctor and I trust her completely.
Anyway, thanks for the answer. I put this here because I have an actual question, but if the opinion part requires it to be moved, my apologies to the mods.
