About this book

Many thousands of international graduate physicians from diverse medical specialties serve the health care needs of the United States, and one-in-four psychiatry residents are international medical graduates.  International Medical Graduate Physicians: A Guide to Training was created by prominent leaders in academic psychiatry to support the success of these international medical graduate physicians as they complete their clinical training and enter the physician workforce in this country.  This insightful title has been developed as a valuable resource, filled with key information and personal narratives, to foster optimal wellbeing and decisionmaking of IMG physicians as they navigate their careers.  The text is thorough in scope and replete with perspectives, reflections, and tailored guidance for the reader.  Many of the chapters are based on the direct and diverse life experiences of the authors.  A unique and thoughtful contribution to the literature, this Guide will be of great value to international physicians and to their teachers and supervisors in psychiatry as well as other specialties of medicine.

Reviews

“The book … will remain highly useful for international medical graduate (IMG) physicians applying to psychiatry residencies and for the faculty members who teach and supervise them in U.S. Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) residency programs. … I found the book quite accessible and useful. … This book will provide much needed guidance for those who come to the U.S. to train in psychiatry and valuable information for those of us who are expected to train them.” (Marshall Forstein, Academic Psychiatry, Vol. 41, 2017)
