Where are the most popular destination for GPs in Australia?
There are plenty of opportunities in Australia, especially in rural & remote areas of the outback such as mining towns and other places that hardly register as a dot on the map! These out of the way places can provide a great escape and a life outside the norm.
How do I get assessed to work as a GP in New Zealand?
Assessment is made by the Medical Council of New Zealand and the Royal New Zealand College of General Practice. There is no location restriction.
In order to work in a permanent GP position, GP’s require Vocational or Pre-Vocational registration.
If you do not hold a relevant Australasian post graduate qualification then the assessment process takes several months. Overseas trained doctors who satisfy the criteria must complete between 12-18 months supervised practice and assessment on provisional vocational scope before being considered for vocational scope.
Overseas trained GP’s may also work for up to 6 months in locum position on special purpose registration.
If you are an international GP looking for a job in New Zealand then you may be eligible for registration. If you hold one of the postgraduate qualifications listed below, meet the English language requirements and have completed at least two years vocational GP training.
