Questions about offshore medical schools receive attention in an investigation by The St. Petersburg Times. The offshore institutions defend their quality, and note that they are producing many graduates at a time of a medical shortage in the United States. But the article notes that graduation rates at the offshore schools lag those in the United States, and that some graduates are unable to obtain residencies, effectively limiting their ability to practice in the United States, and leaving them in many cases with large debts.
