Some groups are concerned President Trump’s order blocking people from seven countries from entering the United States could harm healthcare.
The order could worsen the shortage of doctors in the United States, warns the Association of American Medical Colleges.
We are deeply concerned that the Jan. 27 executive order will disrupt education and research and have a damaging long-term impact on patients and health care,” AAMC President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch said in a statement Monday.
