Recently, an increasing amount of people are seeking more from their career, more flexibility, quality of life, and are making these points a priority when considering their long-term career. As medical recruiters who deal with jobs all over the world, we speak to many doctors daily who are seeking their dream role.
A large portion of the enquiries we receive are from Junior Doctors considering taking a year out before they embark on a specialty training programme, as well as more experienced doctors who are looking to explore living and working abroad before making a long term career change.
Making the move
There are many things to consider before making a move to another country – eligibility criteria, visas, medical registration, how to apply for jobs and upfront costs are just a few areas that need careful consideration.
In addition, you want to ensure that you can obtain the right job to suit your requirements. Factors such as location, hospitals permitted to sponsor international doctors, living costs and opportunities for development are all important things to consider as well.
