Admission of Alien Physicians for Graduate Medical Education: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees, and International Law of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, Ninety-Sixth Congress, Second Session on H.R. 7118.
Congressional hearings on H.R. 7118, a bill to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act with respect to the admission of foreign medical graduates for graduate medical education, are presented. The bill would allow an extension of the time by which hospitals are required to reduce their reliance on foreign medical graduates. In particular the bill would authorize: a two-year extension of the substantial disruption waiver authority for those hospitals that make a clear showing by means of a comprehensive plan that they are phasing down reliance on foreign medical graduates by recruiting U.S. medical graduates, improving the quality of the program, and attempting to use alternative health care providers. The bill suggests that the National Health Service Corps should play a prominent part in providing medical services while hospitals and programs develop and implement their plans. Testimony by representatives of the federal government, the City and State of New York, and the medical community are presented. Statements regarding the bill and alternative proposals are appended (SW)
