If you are reading any articles about comparison between doctors according to countries you will find that most of the newspapers and websites consider US doctors as the best doctors in the world, is it true or it is just an American propaganda for their doctors and healthcare system, this is what we will discuss here in this article.
We all know that famous doctors in the history were from Egypt, Greece, China, India and other countries but certainly not United States of America but now everything is different as the quality of doctors is not measured by the doctors themselves but it depends on the healthcare system they are working in, the guidelines thy have and if they are strict to the rules or not.
USA has the best training program for doctors worldwide, many doctors everywhere are taking USMLE step 1, USMLE step 2 CK, USMLE step 2 CS and USMLE Step 3 exams in addition to paid observerships and paid medical electives in USA to match a medical residency and practice medicine there, they are not only seeking for high salaries there but also they are seeking for good medical training which can help them to be great doctors anywhere, in case they travelled to another country with an American Board they will always be in the 1st category of doctors in this country.
According to most of the rankings, USA also has the best Universities, medical schools and also the best hospitals in the world, we will not take here a lot about the criteria for these rankings but in general always USA won in such rankings followed by European countries, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
Scott. M. Aaronson, Carter. G. Abel, Mona. M. Abaza, Mark. F. Aaron, Corrie T. M. Anderson, A. Reese Abright, Khalid Abbed, Fouad. M. Abbas, William Abdu, Myles. B. Abbott and Ben Carson are examples for famous doctors in United States.
According to a study published in BMJ journal, mortality rate of patients treated by foreign doctors in USA is less than mortality rate of patients treated by US doctors, which means a lot.
At the end we have to admit that United States has the best healthcare system in the world so they have the best doctors but if other doctors anywhere worked in USA they will also be the best doctors because it depends on the system more than the doctors themselves.
