"Medicare Patients Had Slightly Better Survival Rate With Foreign-Educated Doctors, Study Finds" - Wall Street Journal. 2/2/2017.

According to a study by researchers at Harvard, including Ashish Jha, Medicare patients in U.S. hospitals were less likely to die when their doctors were educated outside the U.S. The researchers expressed concern about the findings in light of the Trump administration’s new immigration policies and the nation’s heavy dependence on foreign-educated doctors. Mr. Trump’s executive order “creates the impression that America is becoming less open,” Jha said.
