Sydney is well known for its iconic harbour beaches and cosmopolitan lifestyle. GPs from abroad are often drawn to GP jobs in Sydney as a working holiday, and while there are some opportunities for this, there are more options for GPs looking to settle into a permanent job for a few years. GPs who are serious about building up a career in Sydney have a great opportunity to differentiate themselves and earn well if they are willing to put in regular working hours and do the occasional weekend shift. There are also opportunities to pursue an academic career with some of the top medical schools in the country. The type of typical GP clinic in Sydney varies depending on the location and the age of the suburbs. We have several large corporate style clinics operating successfully in the CBD but the northern suburbs for example are characterised by smaller, more traditional, GP owned clinics. Demand for GPs is very low in the established suburbs, while the newer growth corridors have higher demand. In recent years, Sydney has attracted many medical entrepreneurs with little experience in running good medical clinics. We often advise GPs to proceed with caution as it can be difficult to identify quality GP clinics.
