Malpractice Lawsuits Against Foreign Born Doctors

>We have been compiling jury verdict information on our website recently so I have been looking though a number of jury verdicts.

Someone needs to do a study of the statistical differences in outcomes in medical malpractice lawsuits against foreign doctors and those born in the United States. I’m telling you, I might be looking at this in an unscientific, way but the difference just seems to jump off the pages at you.

Okay, so why is this? The first theory is that American colleges and medical schools are just better and they are putting out better doctors than those schooled abroad. I’m sure this is true to a point. But I’ll bet you if you thin sliced it further, you would find that the same non-American doctors who went to college and medical school here still perform worse at trial than American born physicians.

It is a pretty depressing commentary, really.

    In my opinion, there is no different between foreign doctors to American doc. Thank you for posting it!
