  This qualitative project focuses on questions of justice related to international medical graduates (IMGs) and underserved populations in the U.S. at a time of changing immigration policy and increased anti-immigrant sentiments. Methods include 1) analysis of literature and media and 2) interviews with staff of national medical organizations, and IMGs and staff from the institutions where they practice and train in West Virginia, a rural, underserved state heavily reliant on IMG labor.
