The Doctor Emigration Project (2014-2016) is a research project which aims to describe and analyse the emigration patterns of non-consultant hospital doctors (NCHDs) in training to provide Irish health workforce planners with a more robust evidence base for predicting and understanding emigration dynamics and drivers, during doctors’ specialist training.

The Doctor Emigration Project will profile NCHDs in training who have emigrated from Ireland, exploring the factors influencing their emigration. The project will also profile NCHDs in training who remain in Ireland while exploring the factors influencing their decision to remain.
