There was a rumor in Miami about 3 year suspensions for Russia and Ukraine. This is not true. The suspensions begin september 1 and last through 12/31/07. There will be a probation period starting 1/1/08 as well as an education and documentation process to ensure compliance. While level playing fields and "clean" records are important, the health of the individual should matter most. Being personally involved in the medical/surgical system of Ukraine, I know we have a high, but not impossible mountain to climb. Growth is seldom painless. Contact me via email with any questions.
