From what I know you need to re-certified as a doctor in Australia, regardless of your position overseas. You need to high control of the English language and understand the very technical details in undertaking procedures. I have read stories from overseas doctors from Asia that have complained that they may have did one section of a procedure incorrectly in an assessment and failed it as a result. It is often equated to completing the final year assessment tests that doctors study for when they completing internship simatounously (I may be wrong) but it is often described as very intense.

It does depend on your field of medicine as your specialisation? A doctor can specialise in General Practitioner also known as a GP (treating doctor in a medical office) and make decent money while working. You make more if it's your clinic, as half of the benefit paid to you can go to overheads from what I have read when you are part of a clinic. To get experience it may be worth it, but it becomes harder if you have a family to support because you also need to complete professional development ($10K+ each year) with higher living expenses.

Once you are certified as a doctor in Australia, you should be open to rural and remote experiences. It is a very competitive field especially in metropolitan areas where international employees are last on the list to get internships in hospitals to get qualified, compared to students who already have received the very limited places available. I would rather go rural and remote as a doctor, which I am guessing you would be reward with incentives. Some rural and remote areas may desert or may isolated areas near forests, as doctors are in demands in many different areas around Australia with growing populations

I am not a doctor, but I have looked into doing the field to learn. It is very competitive and too intense for me because it becomes your life. You sleep, study, work and move between those tasks. The suicide rate is very high for young doctors because of the stress demands that keep getting higher, as they want to become better doctors faster and faster.

what about dentists

There is a bit of a shortage in rural areas and by which it doesn't always mean the middle of the desert but more or less places like Wagga, Townsville or Albany or something

As long as you're white you'd be a welcome change from the Paki and nigger doctors

>what about dentists

Not certain of the accreditation procedures for Dentist sorry, but I am guessing it may be similar but not as intense. You are still expected to provide medical treatment during life-threatening situation (anaphylaxis).

Your best bet would be to find a certification board in the state where you want to live. There should be more information there about the process then find a forum where people talk about this. As much as a cringe when I say this, Whirlpool.net.au may provide some useful advice from dentists, but there are a lot of internet experts who post on there. You will need to filter the information.

I still recommend the rural and remote pathway because that is a high demand area where you could the high level of patients to the bulk bill (charge the government for set fees for set services) with a lowish gap fee (the fee the patient pays between what you charge and what the government pays). Gap payments are often made by health insurance providers and are dependent on each dentist. One dentist could be gap-free with one insurance company but expect payment from another insurance provider. It all depends on the area, the consumers as you may be a successful bulk billing practice that makes good money from it because no one is working in the area. A few bulk bill dentists still exist out in Western Sydney, but their quality is not known.

There is no such thing as a "bulk billing" dentist in Australia, dentistry isn't covered by medicare.

There are some state based programs that provide free dental care to people with health care cards or children and there's also a federal program for children as well but on the whole dentistry doesn't work on the basis of a set government rebate and a potential gap, dentists just charge and private health insurance covers part of that if you have it. In some cases private health insurers have preferred clinics and do things like giving 100% back on checkups but it has nothing to do with medicare or the government.

Typically the state based programs are run out of public clinics where the dentists are employed by the state government.

Sorry, I was incorrect. This the correct advice that there is no completely free dentistry provided by the federal government.

>dentistry isn't covered by medicare.

What? That is completely true, there are some federal government services, but they are limited in the scope you provide.

>Medicare gives you access to:

>a range of medical services for free or at a lower cost including:

>>at times, dentists and other allied health professionals

>the whole dentistry doesn't work on the basis of a set government rebate and a potential gap

I thought we do receive a benefit from Medicare. My last dental bill processed through HICAPS with a charge and benefit column. Total benefit was paid was $150 and the gap payment of $80+ that was picked up by my private health insurance provider with the total overall payment was $200+. Without private health insurance, I would need to pay the gap. So, who the hell is paying the benefit excluding the gap payment because I haven't for 5+ years?

I just did an interview with a doctor recruitment company

Apparently the money can be very good and the hospital will help you set up for a few months.

Not sure what makes a good patient. You want them to just lie still on their backs while you rip their teeth out?

I know there's a lot of demand for doctors but not sure about dentists, I can't imagine why there wouldnt be though. You may have to move to remote areas however.
