Medicine is defined as an art as well as the science of healing. The medical field or medicine is the science which deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and curing of diseases. The person who practices medicine is referred to as a medical doctor, physician, medical practitioner or simply doctor. The people who want to help others, have a caring nature and want to heal other people should try to become a doctor. A doctor is a life saver for many, hence, this profession is considered to be of a very high stature.

Unfortunately, in today’s world medicine has become more of science than of art. The art about medical field is that the medical practitioner heals the one who really needs it without any greed, but this is lacking in the present day doctors. With the progress of science, there has been a rapid decline in the human element of health care provision. Today, a doctor wants a lavish lifestyle with all comfort and rich patients who can pay them a huge amount. They want to practice in a developed country where they could get all the things they desire. The reality is that there are many countries around the world which have a real shortage of medical experts.

Also Know : What are good study habits for medical students?

In many countries, the percentage of doctors is just 1% out of the whole population. These countries have a very high demand for doctors. Some of those countries are-

  • Ethiopia- Ethiopia is situated in Africa. This country is highly populated but the irony is that so many people live here, still, there is a scarcity of doctors with fewer than one doctor for every 36,000 people. Most doctors of Ethiopia move to private healthcare centers or to other countries. The government has carried out ‘health extension worker’ program because of which the conditions have now become a bit better.

There are many good medical institutions in Ethiopia like Addis Ababa University, Paulos College, New Generation University College, Adam General Hospital, and Medical College, etc. The admission to these institutions is merit based for the native African students and for the foreign students must apply with their school leaving certificates equivalent to the Ethiopian school-leaving certificates, health certificate and must be proficient in English at TOEFL level.

 

 

 

  • Chad- Chad is a small country of Central Africa. Chad has one of the worst medical worker shortage with about one doctor for every 10,000 people. Research shows that this country needs 300 percent more medical practitioners because of increased healthcare needs and a reduction of medical workforce. This small country has a great demand for doctors so that they could prevent diseases.

One who aspires to become a doctor could study in The University de N’Djamena’s Faculte de Medicine (Medical School) to pursue a degree in medical science.

  • Burundi- Burundi is a very small country situated in East Africa. In this country, the availability of a doctor is just one per 34,000 people. The country lacks skilled healthcare professionals. The government of Burundi provides free maternal, child healthcare and free treatment for HIV patients but the lack of doctors has hampered this program.

The people who want to pursue a medical degree in Burundi could take admission in the universities like The University of Burundi or Universite du Burundi and East Africa Star University. The admission in these universities is merit-based.

  • Tanzania- Tanzania is a country in situated in the East African region with vast wilderness. The country faces a great dearth of physicians. There is only one doctor per 10,000 people. To resolve this issue the government has trained ‘assistant medical officers’ in different parts of the country.

There are many medical colleges in Tanzania like Aga Khan University, St. Joseph University, National Institute for Medical Research, St. Francis University College of Health and Allied Sciences etc. The admission in the medical colleges of Tanzania is made through Tanzania Commission for Universities. The student must be proficient in English with the score of 65 or above at TOEFL level.
