Member of Parliament Assem Araji wrote on his twitter account today that physicians are considering immigration due to the desperate situation they have reached as a result of the catastrophic economic and political situation the country is facing.
Araji tweeted: “I am practicing my profession as a physician in the American University of Beirut Medical Center since the eighties, were physician used to smell death in every street as a result of the civil war and the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, even though few of them immigrated the country. The whole medical body survived across the country.
Araji added, “Physicians are immigrating today not only due to economic factors, but also because of their hopelessness and despair of the political parties.”
بعملي كطبيب متمرن بالثمانينات بمستشفى الجامعة الامريكية ،كانت رائحة الموت بكل شارع وحي نتيجة الحرب الأهلية والاجتياح الأسرائيلي للبنان، لم يترك الاطباء الا القليل وصمد الجسم الطبي بكل مستشفيات بيروت والمناطق
هجرة الأطباء الأن ليس فقط لعوامل اقتصادية بل لليأس من الطبقة السياسية
