Comment

RCGP wrote today: "There are indeed differences in the pass rates between doctors who are from white ethnic backgrounds and those who are from minority ethnic backgrounds, particularly international medical graduates. These are differences that exist across many medical specialities and in higher education more generally." I wonder why are we (IMGs) are so successful in US? 99.9% IMGs trained in US are flourishing and very well respected. IMGs in UK and US are very much alike. So, is there something wrong in the chilly air of UK. Does it freeze the brains of ethnic minorities making them unintelligent. Or is there something systematically wrong elsewhere.
