By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - I get this kind of question frequently: "Don, Do you know of any hospitals or physician practices in Panama that need a pathologist (generalist)? Regards, Mike M.D." Sorry, Mike, but foreigners can not practice medicine in Panama. Period. This is one of the professions closed to outsiders, and the doors are pretty tightly shut. There are a few flying along the edges (like Chiropractors) but no one openly practicing or advertising. In short, if you're not a Panamanian then you won't be practicing medicine in Panama.
