Abstract:The international migration of doctors has raised a lot of attention among policy makers during the past decade. In 2007, the percentage of foreign‐trained doctors ranges from a low of 3.1% in France (although this figure is under‐estimated; see "Definition and deviations" below) to a high of 33.6% in Ireland (Figure 3.4.1). High percentages are also recorded in New Zealand and the United Kingdom where almost a third of all doctors were trained abroad. In Australia and the United States, this percentage is respectively 22.8% (2006) and 25.9%.
