EMAIL  Print A+
With the ageing population continues to increase by 3.5% every year till 2022, it means that the foreign doctors and nurses are likely to remain in demand in Australia.

According to information, Australia is adjusting its policies on migration for making sure it attract and retain foreign health professionals. Priority has been given to Medical Practitioners, Allied Health Professionals, and nurses to make sure that the adequate supply is being met. 

Currently, Australian Immigration Department (DIBP) has allocated around 13,872 positions for the registered nurses, 6,000 for medical specialists, 3,558 for general medical practitioners.

Foreign medical professionals who are looking to migrate to Australia are required to complete a process of skills assessment by Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council of Australia or Australian Medical Board.

The authorities would make sure that the professionals are suitably skilled at certain level similar to a medical professional of Australia. The task involves examining the individual ability in English Language, qualification, job experience and enrollment level or type. In many cases applicants might be asked to give an oral or written exam. This process of skills assessment might take months for completing.

The Australian Immigration Department (DIBP) has recognized that the employers in Australia are looking for foreign medical professionals and if they verify the skills of a prospective employee, then that individual will not be subjected to strict process of skills assessment.
