Abstract

Facing offshore competition, local medical schools have been lobbying the state Board of Regents, which supervises all educational activities in New York, for tighter limits on the use of state teaching hospitals for clerkships by offshore medical students. But New York needs students from the Caribbean medical universities. Graduates of Caribbean medical schools fill some of the most needed physician slots in New York State, and the monetary contributions of offshore schools are helping financially strapped teaching hospitals.

Keywords: Offshore Medical Schools; Physician Shortage; New York State; Medical Education
