Episode 11: Lubab al-Quraishi on how the US mistreats foreign physicians
Play • 29 min
Pat speaks with Baghdad-trained physician Lubab al-Quraishi about her disappointment with the medical licensing system in the United States. She worked for a decade as a pathologist in Iraq, but ended up working at Popeyes in the US because she could not afford the studying time or financial costs of the exams needed to transfer her license.  The conversation is based off al-Quraishi's recent First Opinion, "Foreign-trained doctors like me were asked to help fight Covid-19. Now we’re being tossed aside."
