The US Health Care System Needs Immigrants. By any objective measure, the United States doesn't train enough medical doctors to meet the nation's needs. That means graduates from other countries are needed. Aaron takes a look at foreign medical graduates, an essential element of America's health care system.
This episode was adapted from a column Aaron wrote for the Upshot. Links to further reading and sources can be found there: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/06/upshot/america-is-surprisingly-reliant-on-foreign-medical-graduates.html
