Medical skills are in high demand in Australia – not just doctors, but physiotherapists, dentists, pharmacists, nurses and many others can come to Australia through general skilled migration. However, if you have a non-Australian qualification you will need to be prepared for a long process before you can have your skills assessed as equivalent to an Australian practitioner.
For some occupations like doctors, you need to spend a year working in Australia before you can achieve general registration, so you should look at work-sponsored migration at first. For others, like pharmacists and physiotherapists, you will need to sit examinations and potentially a practical assessment. The full process can take over a year, so it’s best to get started early.
