Medical migration and Africa: an unwanted legacy of educational change

International Journal

Medical Teacher, Volume 29, Issue 9 & 10 Nov 01, 2007

“The opportunities given for medical staff to travel, work and remain in countries other than that of their domicile or graduation have led to the phenomenon of medical migration.” “This paper suggests that it is a responsibility of medical educators throughout the world to recognize this effect and create opportunities whereby the specialty of medical education positively effects medical migration to the benefit of the less fortunate areas of the world.”
