IT outsourcing firms have no problem getting Indian workers jobs in the US. As we all know IT companies were protesting the Trump attempt to halt immigration from countries with security issues. I don't think the medical doctors joined those protests.
Medical doctors have succeeded in preventing their salaries from dropping due to outsourcing because their ability to control the licensing process. In order to find out about this one has to dig a few years back but one finds an article that describes how it takes ten years for a trained doctor from Japan or the UK to get a job in the US.
