Abstract

Foreign physicians face critical linguistic and cultural barriers to learning American psychiatry. Furthermore, conventional training programs effectively deprive many of them of freedom of choice by forging a professional identity incompatible with medical realities in their own countries. Moral dilemmas complicate the identity crisis. Adequate training for foreign medical school graduates, the author believes, requires working through these conflicts in addition to special emphasis on the social sciences and public health.
