  1. Im not at all surprised. I think there is something seriously wrong with the way we train doctors here. Plus we encourage them to have huge egos which i think encourages them to dismiss their patients legitimate concerns

    >**We found no significant mortality difference when comparing all international medical graduates with all U.S. medical school graduates**
