I believe the prevailing wisdom dictates that the only guarantees are death and taxes.

If you can get accepted to a six-year program in Oz or NZ, however, you have your pre-med and your medical degree wrapped up in one program. (Assuming you can hang with the program, of course.)

There are 5 year uni programs like UTas, Monash and I believe Newcastle...at least they're only a year longer then the traditional (for North America anyway) 4 year program...and all you need is a high school diploma.

i donno if that would be a good option for an indian AbderRahman (assuming your an indian)!
There is alot of racial discrimination going on there these days! (Australia)
You guys (the ones who have experience the schools) must agree to me as well?

I'm currently a registrar. As for would I recommend it I don't see why not at the moment in some hospitals 60% of the medical staff are Indian. There was a huge shortage of australian staff for a long time and this will only be corrected in a few years when the Australian students start to graduate. So if you are going to try and work here now is the time while there is still a shortage and your training is recognised.

At least if you are indian trained you can work as a doctor from day 1 (post Amc part 1) and in some states even before amc 1. Whereas in Canada you would have very little hope of working. So to me that's less discrimination.
