    US Med School Grad--Can I get an GP internship/residency in Australia (Melbourne)?

    I will be graduating from a US med school in a couple of years and was wondering if I could do the equivalent of a US residency in Australia. I've read that it is pretty difficult to get an internship position if you didn't graduate from an Australian medical school. Does anyone know if this is possible and what the steps may be?

    Briefly, I am an IMG, I got my surgical practice 5 years in general surgery in Middle East and obtained my Master degree in general surgery from Middle East University. Moreover, I applied with my wife to visa subclass 176 ( sponsored by family member) and Obtained my permanent residency in Australia. I have granted my permanent residency in Australia.

    I am thinking of taking the AMC MCQ to practice surgery in Australia. I would like you to give me a hand regarding how to practice surgery in Australia. In addition to that,

    1) What is the suitable pathway for me to gather surgical training program?
    2) Is it preferable to Obtain Membership of Royal Collage of Surgeons from England or Ireland "MRCS of England or Ireland" ?
    3) Would my permanent visa help me to shorten the pathway?
    4) Could you tell me about an agency to guide me?

    Hi there,

    Would you like to share how you obtained permanent residency without full registration? Or, you filed permanent residency with full registration already?

    I think your PR status will definitely help you to success in Australia.

    actually, australia is rather full for junior doctors. no joke..not even local graduates are getting internships.
    besides, why wouldn't you practise in USA?
