Statement attributable to:
Susan R. Bailey, M.D.
President, American Medical Association (AMA)

"The AMA is pleased that the Administration has reconsidered what would have been a setback for U.S. public and rural health. International medical students can now focus on their studies—rather than their immigration status—as they prepare to enter the health field and help fight this pandemic."
