Obstacles to licensure or accreditation can make it difficult for qualified foreign-trained health care professionals (FTHCPs) to contribute on a professional level. The purpose of this African and American Friendship Association for Cooperation and Development (AAFACD) initiative was to assess the needs of unlicensed FTHCPs by identifying potential solutions that would allow them to successfully attain licensure as physicians or nursing professionals in Minnesota. The report includes several recommendations for helping FTHCPs meet the challenges of the licensure process.
Conducted on behalf of African and American Friendship Association for Cooperation and Development. Supported by Neighborhood Planning for Community Revitalization (NPCR), a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota.
