Migration of Qualified Doctors

In recent years, hundreds of well-educated doctors who didn't get the value they deserve in their home country have migrated from Turkey to foreign countries to work. According to the information from the Turkish Medical Association, there has been a tremendous increase in the number of doctors who want to move abroad, particularly in the last 3 years with the start of Covid and the way doctors were treated during these rough times. In 2012, only 59 doctors were willing to move abroad and leave their countries however in the first 11 months of 2021, the number of doctors that left their countries for better opportunities exceeded 1200. He says that the doctors who apply are mostly between their 20s and 30s. "It is possible to say that the majority of them are between the ages of 26 and 35," Prof. Korur Fincancı says. All the information reflected shows that, although there are many European countries where physicians go, Germany is especially preferred. TTB President states that they have received verification requests regarding the documents they have given from the medical chambers in the USA and Canada. From this information, it is understood that the USA and Canada are among the addresses.However, the fact that German-language education has become widespread among medical students indicates that Germany is the most important center of attraction.
