View Point-Migration and Indian doctors|
There has always been a trend in India for doctors to go abroad. They go to developing countries for an international exposure and training in their job. Doctors as well as their countries of origin do benefit from this exposure. A large number of doctors however settle abroad and never return to their country of origin. I have tried to do an in depth analysis of numbers, socioeconomic factors, opportunities and various other factors affecting this. Comforts of western lifestyle and insecurities of living away from their country of origin has to be balanced for this migrant group.
