Abstract

This article is intended to address the plummeting numbers of trained medical personnel in developing countries due to exodus to developed lands often termed as ‘brain drain’ and to put forth ideas and suggestions that turn this brain drain into ‘brain exchange’ thereby benefiting both the donor and the recipient countries. A few suggestions presented here may help in creating an equilibrium of such efflux and influx of such medical personnel, thus completing the so-called ‘brain circulation.
