Possibilities for Placements

There’s strong demand for qualified GPs across regional, rural and urban communities in Australia. With 10 practices running and more in the works, there’s a good chance we have options to suit you and your family.

A country or city placement?
You could have the best of both worlds. Some of our international GPs migrate on a skilled regional visa, which require a number of years working in a regional area before applying for permanent residency. Upon gaining residency some GPs choose to stay in the local community they’ve come to know and love, while others choose to make the move to one of our modern metro practices. All practices are well-furnished and well-equipped.
We’re here to help you explore all the options for relocation to Australia. Read on for the various ways that we can help you with this process, including relocation grants.
