abstract
In the 1960`s the British Royal Society coined the term ‗brain drain` to describe the migration of scientists, physicians, and engineers from Britain to North America (Cervantes). Over the past three decades, the ―brain drain‖ of educated professionals from less affluent to more affluent nations has become a widely discussed global phenomenon. This thesis will focus on the migration of physicians from developing to developed countries. In the thesis, I will offer a description of the brain drain in health care and an analysis of the moral and social problems it poses.
