Abortion bans are having impacts on medical education

Indiana University’s School of Medicine is now sending doctors out of state to complete this requirement for their program. Dr. Nicole Scott, an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology and the residency training program director, said this adds a new layer of complexity to the program’s logistics.

“They have to get a medical license from a different state,” Scott said. “We support their travel and lodging, but that is kind of an unexpected budgetary thing that we just weren’t prepared for.”

So the “doctors from Indiana” are NOT “doctors IN Indiana”…

Sort of. They are still doctors, though. They just can’t practice in Indiana without a license.
