Desirable destinations Down Under now available as a result of changes to current DPA Areas

International Medical Graduates (IMG) continue to be in high demand in Australia; enabling access to a world-class health system while enjoying beautiful surroundings in warmer climates.  Now due to a new set of guidelines it is easier to work closer to the sought-after city locations.

Under new guidelines, IMG’s with substantially comparable specialist qualifications participating in the PEP, can work either in MM1 and DPA or MM1 and Priority GP catchment areas.  DPA refers to Distribution Priority Area which aims to facilitate the placement of medical practitioners in communities of greatest need.  The MMM (Modified Monash Model) is used to assess where the need is. MM1 are the most metropolitan areas and MM7 are the most rural.

A Health Workforce Certificate (HWC) is still required however we will liaise directly with the practice to secure this on your behalf.

In light of these recent changes, we will be adding lots more GP Jobs to our website very shortly so please keep checking to see our latest vacancies –https://transitionmedical.com
