What is India trying to tell doctors in the US?
A top government minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad, this week delivered a jolt to India's aspiring doctors that became front-page news on Tuesday: Any student wishing to continue their medical education in the United States would now have to sign a "bond" binding them to return to India once their studies were completed. Yet for those happy with the status quo, there’s good news. It's not true. The U.S. also hasn't made any new demands for enrollment in American programs, a spokesperson from the U.S State Department said. But whether the Indian government will ask the U.S. government to deny doctors permission to work in the country, as the health and family minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad, reportedly said, remains to be seen.
