Why work as a Doctor in Australia ?

Life in Australia: location, education & career opportunities


Australia offers a relaxed outdoor lifestyle, diverse landscapes, as well as tropical and temperate climates year-round. The main cities and large regional towns provide an abundance of sporting, art and cultural activities. Australia’s strong sporting and education culture makes it a fantastic place to raise children.


A melting pot of different cultures

The Australian culture has evolved into its own unique multi ethnic cultural mix with a population of around 24 million. Approximately 43% of Australians were either born overseas or have at least one parent who immigrated to Australia. The population spread is urbanised with 67% of people living in main metropolitan cities.


Education in Australia – it’s one of the best

The Australian education system is renowned for its high academic standards. The public school system is free to Australia citizens, permanent residents and those on long term work visas. The school year starts at 4 years of age and runs for 13 years divided into primary, secondary and senior secondary. Australian universities are recognised internationally as providing high quality education enticing many students relocate from all over the world to Australia to study.


Cost of living

The cost of living in Australia is higher than the USA and lower than the UK. Sydney, being its most expensive city, is up there with London and New York in terms of cost of housing and general living expenses. The other main centres of Australia are generally more affordable places to live and work. The average wage in Australia is $74,000 per year with a minimum wage of $19.49 per hour. Some figures show Australians earn 25% more than their British colleagues.


Public and private healthcare jobs for doctors

There is a great deal of opportunities for doctors to work permanently or locum in Australia. Australia offers medical specialists an interesting and diverse working environment, career development and excellent remuneration rewards. The positions available range in scope from large teaching hospitals to smaller community hospitals and private clinics.


Getting registered as a doctor in Australia

Doctors aiming to register and work unsupervised as a specialist in Australia must have completed the required training and assessment to gain fellowship with the appropriate Australasian college in their chosen specialty (ie: radiology, emergency medicine, general medicine, psychiatry). If you have trained in Australia or New Zealand the process is straightforward.


English language and training requirements

Doctors must also satisfy the English language and training requirements to register with the Medical Board of Australia and the overarching registration body AHPRA (The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency): https://www.ahpra.gov.au/Registration.aspx

The registration process for International Medical Graduates (IMGs) wanting to work in Australia is complex and different requirements apply to each individual college. Please contact us directly for further detail or check the college websites for more information about your eligibility and the registration process.


Australian immigration

International Medical Graduates (IMG’s) who gain registration with the Medical Board of Australia are eligible for skilled migrant visas and potentially Permanent residency with Australian Immigration.
