Ethiopian doctors

October 2, 2005, [MD]

Just doing research for a short paper on brain drain. The statistics I am coming over are quite incredible. For example, there are more Ethiopian doctors in Chicago alone, than in all of Ethiopia! And of the 700 doctors that were educated in Zambia after independence, only about 60 are left. 80% of all the doctors in Saskatchewan are educated outside of Canada, and the US yearly imports as many doctors as they educate - saving as much money as they give in development aid…

(I realize I should have linked all to sources, but I have an essay due. Ask me.)
