Doctor in the House: Medical Brain Drain - What’s The Solution? (Part 2)

Malaysia is losing our doctors. It’s a fact that we’ve known for years, as we’ve seen and heard stories of doctors leaving the public healthcare system not just for the private sector, but moving abroad as well. In the second part of this discussion, we dive into what are our options to put a stop to the medical brain drain, and whether we should be looking to other countries as the solution to our problem, together with Dr George Lee, Prof Dato’ Dr Adeeba Kamarulzaman, and Dr Timothy Cheng.
