Healthcare is a human rights; as a result, practicing medicine is also a right of healthcare professionals.
Our nation is struggling with the broken healthcare system on many aspects. One of them is the shortage of medical doctors. From a reliable resource, the shortage of MDs at this time is about no less than 30,000 national-wide as a humble number of estimation; however, in the next decade and later on with the increase in population, it only worsens. Shortage of providers is the main cause to lead to quality healthcare access disparity.
To be able to practice medicine independently, a physician must have a powerful piece of paper, a medical doctor license. However, the current medical licensing system in the US has become intricate, redundant, and wasteful; it effectively prevents many qualified MD professionals to be able to properly licensed. So, it turns out to be a counter-productive system to supply for the high demand of public healthcare services.
Among the physicians and medical graduates who are prevented from finalizing their MD licenses, foreign-trained US physicians are the worst victimized professionals. There are many external and internal caused that expose their vulnerability to the current ineffective licensing system. In my book, Survival Skills for USMLEs and Medical Licensing in the US, I have articulated all the issues, small and big ones.
