This annotated bibliography contains citations concerned with the intercountry movement of physicians and nurses throughout the world. Entries are limited to material completed between January 1, 1964 and January 1, 1974. Citations primarily include books, journal articles, and reports. Unpublished documents from governmental or international organizations that provide guidance for research methodology on the migration of professional personnel or recommend alternative actions for modulating migration flow are also included. The entries are grouped under six major subject headings: (1) patterns and dimensions of migration; (2) factors fostering migration; (3) impact of migration; (4) methodologies for studying the migration process; (5) intervention strategies; and (6) training and evaluation of foreign physicians and nurses. A seventh subject heading, labeled "Other" includes material obtained subsequent to the classification of entries within the subject areas. Each entry appears in its entirety under the first subject area of the bibliography to which it relates. When an entry pertains to more than one subject, it is listed by citation number under each relevant topic. Author and geographic indices are provided. The author index includes both principal and secondary authors collaborating on a work; the geographic index contains both country names and regions of the world. (Author/SPG)
