IMG Petition to Removing Barriers for Medical Graduates in Illinois to Help Fight COVID-19

As the current COVID-19 pandemic reaches 1.4 million cases in the United States (U.S.) and 76,000 in the state of Illinois, the growing pandemic is placing enormous strain on Illinois’ health care safety net. International Medical Graduates (IMGs), who make more than one-quarter of all resident physicians, already play a vital part in delivering healthcare across the nation and must continue to use their talents to build our strained healthcare workforce during our current pandemic. We are asking for an emergency relaxation of the medical license requirements to allow IMGs to treat patients. To support our IMG physicians, please add your signature here.
