The maldistribution of medical professionals by regions is not an exclusive reality of our country and also occurs in different countries in the world context. In Brazil, this reality has a greater proportion due to the presence of rural areas that are difficult to access, with a tendency for professionals to remain concentrated in large urban centers. This study aims to discuss the process of physicians' stay in vulnerable areas in the world and Brazilian context. A bibliographic review was carried out using the databases PubMed, Portal Capes and Google Scholar, selecting studies published in the last five years. Comparing the observations about medical shortages, it is possible to conclude that medical schools have a similar distribution, that is, the regions with greater availability of physicians are those where academic training in medicine occurs.

Key words: Doctors shortage, health care, medical education.
