 Abstract

 

Background: Many doctors who trained in developing countries always travelled to developed countries for specialization.  After specialization, many of them do not return to their countries of origin but stay put in the host countries, and get absorbed into the health delivery system of the host countries.  To stop this exodus of much needed man-power in the developing countries, many of these developing countries devised their own postgraduate programs so that there will be no need for doctors that aspire to specialize to leave the country any more.  This review article is to assess the quality of the various postgraduate programs in the Third World countries.

 

KEY WORDS:  Surgical residency training: Developing Countries: Nigeria: Ghana: West African College of Surgeons: National postgraduate medical college, United States of America, Canada.
