Reasons for working abroad
- By: Marko Bukurov
Where will you be working in five or 10 years time? At home or abroad, nobody can be sure. Although medicine is a universal profession with doctors needed everywhere, becoming a practising doctor abroad is almost always difficult. It is the same with medical research, academia, or any other area you might think you can become involved as a doctor.
People might want to leave their country for many reasons. Some may be running away from war and misery, some are escaping from environmental disasters, and some are looking for opportunities or just wanting to have a bit of adventure. However, they all have one thing in common: they are looking for greener pastures. For some people, there is no question whether they should go or not, although most take a while to make a decision and it takes some time to know whether it was the right one.
