Determinants Of Medical Brain Drain In Romania
This article aims to identify the determinants of the decision to emigrate among Romanian physicians. After the accession to the European Union, the emigration of medical doctors has intensified, with major repercussions on the medical system and the national security. Identifying the push and pull factors is the first step in the attempt of implementing a set of measures in order to monitor and stem this phenomenon. A survey was conducted among Romanian physicians (trained in Romania) with an international work experience (currently working abroad or those who worked abroad and returned). Data collected was analysed using SPSS. The main determinants of migration (push and pull factors) identified are: level of payment, working conditions, access to high performance equipment, career prospects and educational opportunities, respect for the medical profession. The main findings offer valuable information on the causes of emigration, constituting a support for policy makers in the heath domain.
