Australia offers a fabulous setting to enjoy a medical sabbatical, an overseas elective or a permanent medical career. From red deserts and green jungles to golden beaches and vibrant cities, there really is ‘Nothing like Australia’.
Australia consistently ranks as one of the world’s best places to live by all indices of income, human development, healthcare and civil rights. It's the world's 13th-largest economy and has the world's sixth-highest per capita income. It's the sixth-largest country in the world by land mass, but it has a comparatively small population (circa 23 million), which is concentrated in and around metropolitan cities and coastal areas.
Due to Australia's growing population and booming economy there’s a real need for Doctors. There is a mix of public and private healthcare in Australia and depending on where you go you could work in a large metropolitan teaching hospital or in a remote outpost covering a large geographical area - or anything in between. Some of the unique experiences that you can have in Australia include joining the Flying Doctors or working within remote Aboriginal communities.
The vastness of the country means that there are a huge range of climates and lifestyle options. Whether you want to work regionally and buy a vineyard, surf every day before work at a pristine beach, live by the ski fields or experience life in the unforgettable outback, we can help you find the right job.
