Please submit your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our recruitment team will contact you directly to discuss your options. Alternatively, for a quick overview, please view our Registration Pathway Fact Sheet for VR GPs in Australia.
Doctors trained outside Australia
Doctors trained outside Australia will need to work in parts of the country which the Federal Government has identified as having insufficient numbers of GPs. These areas are known as Districts of Workforce Shortage (DWS). There are a number of pathways to registration, however the common factors in each of these pathways are:
- You must be eligible to hold a relevant working visa for immigration purposes
- You must be eligible for registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Registering Authority (AHPRA)
- You must be eligible to access Medicare
- You need to have an offer of employment
- You must have a minimum amount of GP experience
Sounds complicated? Don’t worry; the team at Health Recruitment PLUS can assist you with all of the above. We are keen to ensure that you and your family find a community where you can settle into - both professionally and socially - and we will provide you with the information that you need to make that choice.
