In terms of professional development, simply look at the quality of their FT doctors versus our FT doctors and you can see a huge gulf of difference. If you ask your FT colleague whether their top choice was Australia or Singapore, if they are honest they will tell you they cannot get past the high barrier of entrance exams in Australia, and therefore have to settle for Singapore. Yet others who are smarter are here to use Singapore as a stepping stone to Australia or US.
? Pls la. You know nuts. Regurgutate info from some internet search come here and post.
When is health care free in Australia.
You have to pay healthcare tax from your annual salary. I've been there and done that.
Cheap houses? Again from where? Their price quantum similar to sg and infact in certain cities is way higher than sg. Only difference is it's freehold.
Car cheap is relative. Their transport system sucks. When u have everyone driving into town, car park cost a bomb, traffic jam is terrible. Have car is like not having a ar, u still take their train into town , which cost 5 dollar per trip.

Entrance exams is higher to get into training. Hahahaha haha. Again another non doctor posting in doc thread. Since when is entrance exams needed to get into training.

In order to get full reg got to have equivalent qualifications eg FRACGP. Also need to take AMC. Can consider these as qualifying/entrance exams too.

U dun continue smoking la. Wrong Liao tell u nicely still continue to smoke..piang ey.
Fracgp is what u get after completing gp training. Train finish liao still need what qualifying exams.
If Ur internship is done in a jurisdiction not recognised by Australia, u need to pass AMC part 1 and 2.
Afterward u get limited registration. Once u finish 8 weeks general medical, 8 week surgical and 8 weeks a&ex u essentially pass your 'supervisied practice' and u get general registration. There is no such thing as full registration in Australia.
Only when u completed a vocational training program, eg gp training, surgical training and get the letters behind your names then u can offer independent medical service and charge Medicare for the services rendered to patients.

What's up with all the rubbish post by so many idiots giving false information nowadays man.

Exams and assessments are part of the process still. Hence those can be considered entrance/qualifying exams as well. Every country has its own process for selecting properly trained doctors. Glad that you are able to provide correct current information specific to Australia.

I am curious about this too. Who determines if a foreign-trained physician (already board certified in their home country) is eligible for full registration?
