One in three hospital doctors in Switzerland was educated abroad, a fact that has especially irked German healthcare professionals weary of watching their talented colleagues slip over the border.

Re: Germany paying for Switzerland's doctors

What? I thought Germany was paying for the Greek ones. Have I been misinformed?

And A) Switzerland "loses" many scientists to the USA and other countries, so that to see Switzerland in this case on the receiving end is nice and
B) had Germany enough jobs for its doctors, most of them would NOT leave their country. Swiss entertainers and meteorologists and journalists work in Germany for German companies

And "they" apparently are not up-to-date. What Switzerland at present needs most are NOT doctors but teachers, German speaking teachers to be exact. Many a German teacher with at best semi-employment will now find a job in Switzerland, may in the end settle down here and become Swiss within 12 or 15 years. And then, some Germans can complain again.

Re: Germany paying for Switzerland's doctors

I'm surprised more German teachers don't come here, there seems to be a teacher shortage in many areas.

Re: Germany paying for Switzerland's doctors

same... story, different country. Germany has a nice influx of doctors from east europe, be it Czech republic, Poland or other coutnries. And they also don't pay for their education (well, at least not directly )... So what? There will always be imbalances like these, it's called freedom of movement
