A University of Minnesota program to help doctors from abroad retrain in the US has fallen victim to budget constraints. According to the Crookston Times, the cost of the program was $150,000. So far, three Somalian doctors have been retrained. The program was designed to help doctors in the US participate in a seven month intensive retraining program in order to get ready to re-enter a residency program and eventually qualify for licensure in Minnesota.
