  Assuming this is not a Troll post:

1. The grammar in this thing is bad, seriously bad.
2. AMGs will always have priority over any IMG getting into residency, Non -US IMGs will never be considered for something like this, Never.
3. US-IMGs may have a chance to increase the possibility of being admitted to residency if they are US born trained outside with a petition such as the one appearing every once in a while in the forum. IMGs born outside the US, trained in another country who eventually become citizens before residency training will probably not be considered for an initiative of this sort.
4. Grammar in the "petition" is bad. Really, really bad.

I doubt it! Congress is full of Republicans, with "Buy American, Hire American" attitude and an upcoming trump immigration reform.

  I donít see any benefit with this petition. We have to do rotation again for 2 years and then apply for the residency all over again and what if we stilll donít get the residency?i think it will be waste of time and money. I think instead they should bring program like you can work under some physician for year or so and then you can work on your own in the area of critical needs.

  prem522:
And bypass residency to be allowed to earn what American graduates earn after 7+ or so years of training and IMGs after 3-6 years or more of training in the US? That's even worse. Will never happen. IMGs will never be allowed to get into the system like that, not only to replace primary care MDs but also PAs and other "mid level" providers.

The only response to any situation in the future is cranking up the production of AMGs interested in primary care, incentives to move to underserved areas, etc. With the political climate the way it is now, it is very risky to attract attention to the process of matching to residency as IMG.
