Mohammed Abdullahi is a doctoral researcher at the University of Warwick. Mohammed is investigating the factors influencing the return migration of Nigerian medical doctors working in the UK. The project adopts a mixed method approach, using a survey, interviews, and policy document analysis. By developing a more comprehensive and nuanced understanding of doctors’ experiences in their host country, it is expected that the thesis will contribute to the understanding of why highly skilled professionals from Nigeria decide to migrate, remain in their destination countries, or return home. The study could also lead to implementation of better policies for retaining professional expertise within Nigeria and the African continent.
