Fulfilling Potential: A Path Forward For Foreign-Trained Physicians in Maine
Report about a conference titled "Fulfilling Potential: Foreign Trained Physicians -- a Pathway Forward for Maine" that was sponsored by the New Mainers Resource Center, Portland Adult Education, and the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership. Maine, like many other states, has a shortage of healthcare workers and many trained refugees and asylum seekers who cannot get licensed to practice in this country. Leaders from other states shared their experiences at the remote conference. Lewiston Representative Kristen Cloutier is sponsoring legislation to create a Commission to address this issue.
