Default US foreign medical graduates

In Canada, all foreign medical graduates including medicine, pharmacy, dental medicine etc with license adhered academic curriculum are granted green cards because those training is specific to the country---Canada. However, in US, it is NOT and after graduation, if the employer does NOT sponsor you any green card, you need to leave. So Canda retains those licensed foreign medical graduates and why US does NOT???

Is there any channel we can let the US immigration law change to allow those foreign medical graduates stay and get the green card?

Not sure about medical students from other countries but India require all Indian doctors going to US (or for any other country) for higher studied, to sign a bond stating that they will return back to India after studies. Also US consulate requires a NDA signed by govt of India saying that India does not have any objection with this student studying in US. Here is more information about this.

The laws are restrictive, because US medical associations do not want increased competition that leads to lower wages.

In the short term (5-10 years), there will be no change. Longer term (15-20 years), if mortality and cost increases, there may be a push to change this situation. Looking at the past record, there should be another round of health care reform around 2026-2030, and that could be when something gives.
