International medical graduates (IMGs) play an important role in many Western countries because of globalization and physician shortages.

To illustrate that situation, our study aimed to investigate practicing IMGs in Taiwan by comparing practicing physicians' nationalities to the countries in which the medical schools the IMGs graduated from are located.
