Home > Work as a Doctor in Australia > Why Australia?

The world is awash with opportunity for highly skilled medical practitioners. So why would you choose Australia over the many other options you might have?

Australia has a unique place in the world. First of all, Australia has one of the best healthcare systems in the world. With an excellent balance of public healthcare (Medicare) and a thriving private health sector, Australia has achieved what many others have yet to achieve—quality, comprehensive healthcare and choice for all Australians.
Wonderful Australia Perfect to work as a Doctor
For doctors, the diversity of work locations here is second to none. From large teaching hospitals, to private clinics in a wide variety of geographic and lifestyle settings, right through to the elite Royal Flying Doctor Service, which provides quality medical services to remote communities; the choices are fantastic.

As one of the most multicultural nations in the world, you will also find Australians to be welcoming and inclusive of newcomers from other countries. As a country, we are recognised as having a stable democracy that encompasses people from all walks of life.

Much of this can be attributed to an open and tolerant community that celebrates the contribution of other cultures and believes passionately in freedom of speech and religion. Australians accept the differences of other people—and expect the same of others. The incredible influence that migrants have had on Australia is evident in everything from cuisine to art and literature.

A good climate is something that everyone readily associates with Australia. The reality is that Australia has many climates—from the tropics to Mediterranean-like areas, to cooler temperate climates. And while temperatures in certain parts of Australia can become very cold (several degrees below zero on the Celsius scale), generally the cold climate extremes that are experienced in other parts of the world do not occur in Australia. This dramatically increases the opportunities for outdoor recreation and provides considerable choice for people wishing to live somewhere with good weather but milder temperatures.

Australia offers an amazing choice of lifestyle. Australians like space and this is reflected in the way we live. Each of the capital cities and regional centres have their own unique character. Urban and rural communities are great places to live and raise a family where you can be as active or as relaxed as you choose to be.

With its abundant physical resources, Australia has had a high standard of living since the 19th century. It has made a significant investment in social infrastructure, including education, training, health and transport.

In a globalised economy, language skills are a key workforce advantage. Although Australia is an English-speaking country, more than 4.1 million of its people speak a second language.

While the country is vast, our network of transport links and telecommunications is first-rate. Australia has one of the highest per capita usages of Internet and telecommunication devices in the world.

As you would expect from a modern nation, Australia offers the full range of cultural and educational facilities. Our cultural institutions and research organisations are world-class and all forms of popular culture are thriving in Australia. Additionally, the incredible choice of places and activities within Australia for a holiday, or even a short break, is outstanding.

When all of these things are taken into consideration, from the incredible lifestyle choices and world-class services and facilities, through to the excellent career opportunities, perhaps the better question is, ‘Why wouldn’t you choose Australia?!!’
