The US Health Care System Needs Immigrants

By any objective measure, the United States doesn’t train enough medical doctors to meet the nation’s needs. That means graduates from other countries are needed. Aaron takes a look at foreign medical graduates, an essential element of America’s health care system.

This episode was adapted from a column Aaron wrote for the Upshot. Links to further reading and sources can be found there: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/06/upshot/america-is-surprisingly-reliant-on-foreign-medical-graduates.html

The Health System of Taiwan: HCT Healthcare of Many Nations

Every once in a while, we like to take a moment and focus on health systems around the world. Today, we’re looking at Taiwan, which made the transition to a single payer system kind of suddenly, and pretty recently.

Switzerland’s Healthcare Explained!

Switzerland! It’s a gorgeous alpine nation of 8 million people. It’s a parliamentary republic made up of 26 cantons. I’ve never been, but I hear great things about it. The country should free to fly us over so we can learn even more. But what I do know about its healthcare system, I’ll be telling you in this episode of Healthcare Triage.

Healthcare in The United Kingdom

We’ve done the US, Canada, and France. None of them are really socialized healthcare systems. To get at that, we need to go look at a system like that of the UK. More specifically, we’re going to talk about England’s National Health Service. See what a real “government run” system looks like, how it compares to yours, and what’s good (and not so good) about it.

Healthcare in Germany

The last international health care system we covered – Singapore – got a great response from all of you. This week. We head back to Europe. Specifically, we’re going to Germany. Their universal health care system is based on the principles of Bismark, which say that the state should provide only for those unable to provide for themselves. It’s a private insurance system, and it’s the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.
