    Objectives

    This study sought to determine whether community health centers need international medical graduates to fill staff positions.

    Methods

    The authors surveyed 100 community health center administrators to learn about their perceptions of international medical graduates.

    Results

    Nationally, about on quarter of community health centers depend on international medical graduates to fill physician vacancies ; most of these centers foresee unfilled positions in the event of a cutback.
