International Medical Graduates

Australian Medical Workforce


Over the past few years Australia has increased the number of students entering or undertaking university medical degrees, with the objective of working towards decreasing the shortage of medical practitioners in Australia which in turn will lead to a decrease on the reliance on doctors trained overseas.

 

While currently workforce shortages exist in various areas of medicine and in various locations across Australia, opportunities for employment is something that doctors trained overseas need to consider when seeking to re-locate to work in Australia.

 

For positions that have not been able to be filled by an Australian graduate, AMA Recruit’s international medical recruitment services may be able to assist doctors who have qualifications obtained overseas. Please note that in order to be considered for positions through AMA Recruit , you will need to have qualifications that are recognized by the appropriate Medical College in Australia.
