Graphical Abstract:


The globalization of medical training has evolved in various ways including individual student migration across borders, academic institutional expansion abroad and governmental influence. The drive for revenue and the balance with teaching excellence is a struggle that medical institutions increasingly contend with today as they navigate in a global environment. In this review, we focus on this emerging data, specifically the economic, regulatory, and societal trends that are shaping the global landscape of medical training. Three important aspects are discussed including: (1) student migration (2) academic institutional expansion and (3) governmental influence in the global medical training realm.

Keywords: Globalization, medical education, MEPI, medical tourism, ECFMG, IMGs.
