The lifestyle that living in Australia can provide for you and your family is second to none. It is the perfect country for those who love to enjoy life but at the same time want to live in an efficient and cutting-edge country. Known for its easy-going lifestyle, Australia offers all kinds of services, work and leisure activities in a relaxed spacious environment. The towns and cities are often surrounded by the impressive beauty of Australian nature; beaches, ocean, national parks and stunning landscapes.
Australia is known for its commitment to work-life balance and this is definitely true in the medical sector. Doctors rarely work outside of a 38-hour week and if this does happen extra penalty rates apply. In addition to salary and penalty payments there is a pension scheme and tax benefits, sometimes up to 30% of income is allowed to be tax exempt.
Being an overseas trained doctor, the first hurdle is becoming registered and your skills, experience and post graduate work can dictate where and how you can enter. This is where having AHP International represent and assist you in the process is crucial, as we are experts on medical registrations.
As an Emergency Specialist who has trained overseas, you may be eligible to work in Australia as a Specialist International Medical Graduate and be accepted into the Australian College of Emergency Medicine, which is comparable to a Fellow of the collage (FACEM).
There are various pathways that are offered by the collage which AHP International can advise on the best option. Arranging a position overseas is very exciting but we understand that it can also be daunting and time consuming. We specialise in international medical recruitment and help doctors relocate to Australia taking care of visa applications, medical registrations and support for you and your family with the relocation itself.
Being trained in a comparable health system means things are a little more straightforward, however depending on your experience this may vary. The best first step is to send us your up to date CV, get in contact and talk to one of our team
