Reversing Medical Brain Drain in Ethiopia: Thinking beyond Restrictive Measure

  • Temesgen Abebe Degu

Abstract

The exodus of medical personnel in Ethiopia has had an adverse effect on the socioeconomic development of the nation. This study focuses on reversing the medical brain drain in Ethiopia. Medical brain drain, in this study, implies the emigration of trained medical personnel of the developing nations towards the developed. It employs Pieter’s concept of selective globalism in analysing the impact of medical brain drain on Ethiopia and equally explores alternatives to reverse brain drain in the context of trans-nationalism and globalization.
