Doctors without Jobs Come Together in Washington, D.C. to Highlight Failure of American Association of Medical Colleges in Supporting Med School Graduates for Residency Training
– Physicians can’t practice medicine without residency; More than 40,000 foreign doctors given taxpayer-funded residencies in the last 10 years as U.S. doctors are benched –
Doctors protest systemic failure that has kept thousands of American doctors out of teaching residencies – without residency, these physicians can’t work – even in a reported doctor shortage and in a pandemic.

Washington, D.C., in front of the offices of the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC), 655 K Street, NW, Suite 100 Washington, DC, 20001-2399
Doctors without Jobs work to build awareness that thousands of U.S. medical school graduates don’t place into residencies each year – a significant reversal from 20 years ago – even though there is a widely reported doctor shortage, predicted to worsen. We also seek solutions to ensuring U.S. medical school graduates can work as doctors.
