More than a third of all doctors in Britain are non-British, a study found, with only one doctor from the United States, the Netherlands and Denmark having a medical degree.
Western medicine means Western science and knowledge, which encompasses medicine and technology.
A total of 619 doctors in Great Britain are British, with the UK’s population being a total of 5.3 million, according to the British Medical Journal.
Dr. Paul Feser, of the University of Sheffield, said that, even though there are a number of British doctors in various professions, most of them are not involved in clinical practice.
“I think it’s a bit of a surprise to the profession because they’re so often considered the go-to guys,” he said.
Many British doctors are also not trained in a wide variety of disciplines, such as pathology, pathology and infectious disease.
British doctors make up less than 3% of the population, but have a disproportionate share of senior posts in medicine, dentistry and orthopedics, according the British Dental Association.
The study, published in the British Journal of General Practice, found that doctors from the UK had fewer internships than the US and New Zealand, as well as fewer PhDs.
Although Britain has had an active medical industry since the 17th century, the number of doctors is on the decline.
According to the latest statistics, the total number of doctorates awarded to British people in 2017 was 1,000, the lowest number since the mid-1970s, according in a report by the Royal College of Physicians.
It’s not just the UK that’s struggling with the number and diversity of its doctors.
The U.S. has a shortage of doctors, and the U.K. has the most British doctors per capita, according an OECD report published in July.
In Britain, there are around 1,600 British doctors working in the country, but a further 1,100 are foreign-trained.
But while British doctors might not be as well-represented in the professions, Dr. Fesers said that this is because they have the least exposure to the UK.
Britain has a population of about 6.7 million people, according a 2016 census, which is about 13.4% of all the population in the U tomes.
There are about 1.2 million Brits working in Europe, according The New York Times, and another 1.1 million in Asia.
While the number one concern for the UK government is to attract more foreign-born doctors, Dr Fesingers said there is an even greater issue that needs to be addressed: the shortage of medical graduates.
With the number in Britain at a record low, there is a lack of qualified physicians who can be trained to treat British patients, DrFeser said.
“We have to recruit more doctors and keep them in the field longer, because the future is bleak,” he told the BBC.
As the country struggles to keep up with the medical demand, Dr Fenster said it’s time for the government to look at bringing more doctors from abroad to the country.
Some countries, like Germany and Canada, have opened up residency programs that would help train British doctors, he said, but he warned against giving in to pressure from politicians who are hoping to “push the British doctors out.”
