NIGERIAN DOCTORS BRAIN DRAIN

Abuja, Nigeria Medical November 9 @ 2:56pm

Background
The Nigerian Medical Association says that since inception in 1960 it has licensed 72,000 medical doctors . Only 35,000 of them practice in Nigeria. Most doctors who want to leave list low remuneration and poor working conditions as the main reason are writing professional placement exams. The major destinations are Canada, USA, UK and Australia.
Meanwhile the W.H.O. says Nigeria needs 235,000 physicians.
Another statistic has it that one of every 4 black doctors in America is Nigerian.

Treatment: I will cover interview 3 doctors on the true motivation behind leaving Nigeria for a 'better' life after 10 years of a difficult medical education.
