What are the top locations for General Practitioner roles in Australia?

Australia’s healthcare landscape presents an array of excellent opportunities for General Practitioners, with some regions standing out as particularly advantageous. Metropolitan areas such as Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane are perennial favourites due to their high population densities and robust healthcare infrastructures. Likewise, the coastal cities of Perth and Adelaide offer a blend of city living with easy access to beautiful natural surroundings. For those looking for a slower pace of life, rural communities in Tasmania, Victoria, and New South Wales can provide a unique and rewarding professional experience.

Additionally, locum GP jobs, which provide short-term and flexible opportunities across the country, can be an ideal choice for those seeking variety in their practice. The ability to work in different settings and communities adds a valuable dimension to a GP’s professional portfolio.

Regardless of your preferences, Alecto is perfectly equipped to help. Whether you’re drawn to the vibrancy of city life, the tranquillity of the countryside, or the flexibility of locum roles, our extensive network and deep understanding of the Australian healthcare job market will be invaluable in your search. Alecto can assist you in identifying and securing a top General Practitioner role in any Australian state, city, or even in rural and locum positions. Our personalised approach ensures we find the ideal position for you based on your professional goals and lifestyle preferences.

What is the usual duration required for Alecto to successfully procure a fitting General Practitioner role?

The duration required for Alecto to secure an appropriate GP role in Australia can significantly fluctuate, contingent on a myriad of factors. These encompass elements such as the prevailing market demand, the candidate’s specific skill set and professional experience, immigration and relocation prerequisites, the particular requirements of the prospective job, and the candidate’s agility in navigating the hiring process.

The process, on average, could span from one week to a few months. It typically includes identifying suitable opportunities, submitting applications for these positions, undergoing interviews, and finessing the employment terms.

It’s paramount to acknowledge that Alecto’s foremost objective is to ensure a harmonious match between the candidate and the employer. While this may occasionally necessitate a longer time frame, it invariably leads to the most rewarding outcomes.

What could be the possible earnings for a General Practitioner in Australia?

The income of a General Practitioner in Australia can vary widely based on factors like the number of sessions per week and billing type. According to our May 2023 survey, full-time GPs earn an average of $334,000 annually. Notably, Australian GPs rank third globally for average yearly income. Earnings can also depend on the practice location and billing type of the practice. For example, full-time GPs at bulk billing practices average $230,000, while those at mixed billing practices earn about $356,000 annually.

Where in Australia can I work as an overseas trained doctor (OTD)?

International Medical Graduates (IMGs), or Overseas Trained Doctors (OTDs), have numerous potential work locations in Australia, contingent upon their qualifications, experience, and specific visa or registration stipulations.

Urban Zones: Depending on certain conditions, including completion of a mandatory 10-year moratorium in a designated area, many OTDs might be eligible to work in some urban settings.

Distribution Priority Areas (DPA): DPAs, located throughout Australia, are regions identified as having a lower than average access to healthcare services. OTDs often find opportunities in these areas due to regulatory requirements.

Rural or Remote Areas: There’s often a high demand for medical services in rural and remote parts of Australia, which are outside of metropolitan zones. OTDs may find it beneficial or necessary to consider these locations.

Please note, given the dynamic nature of regulatory classifications, it’s essential to verify current information with us or the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Are there any restrictions applicable to Overseas Trained Doctors (OTDs)?

Overseas Trained Doctors (OTDs) practising in Australia must observe certain additional restrictions.

Section 19AB Limitations (10-year moratorium): According to Section 19AB of the Health Insurance Act 1973, OTDs are mandated to serve in a designated region for a decade from the commencement of their initial medical registration in Australia. Such areas are often rural, remote, or classified as Distribution Priority Areas (DPA).

Despite the existing restrictions, Overseas-trained General Practitioners can take advantage of various 19AB exemptions available to them.

➜ Learn more about 19AB Exemptions

Distribution Priority Areas (DPAs): As of 2019, the Australian government transitioned from the DWS system to the DPA classification for GPs. DPAs are regions identified as underserved compared to the national average. Consequently, restricted OTDs must work in DPAs to qualify for Medicare benefits. It’s noteworthy that the DPA status of a region undergoes annual reassessment.

Bear in mind, these regulations are subject to modification and may differ based on the OTD’s individual circumstances, such as visa type and medical specialty. To comprehend the existing stipulations fully, it’s crucial to consult with an informed authority like Alecto to figure out what location is best for you.
