    Year 1 - Internships (Need Help!!!)

    Advertisements



    Hi Everyone,

    I really need some constructive help.

    I am from the United States and am currently planning on moving to Australia. I have passed the USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK, Step 2 CS exams. I have also passed the Australian MCQ Part 1 exam.

    I graduated from medical school back in 2008, and started working instead of progressing through to residency. My parents needed my support and I came back home to provide aid and income.

    These past few years, I met my fiance (Australian) and we would like to move to Australia to start our lives. So I looked into the medical process and thought it was a good idea. Now that the Part 1 exam is over, we don't know what and how to move forward.

    I've read about the "bottleneck" effect here in Australia. A lot of candidates but not enough training programs. Huge need for physicians but very hard to get there.

    I was foolish enough to think that it would be a smooth transition. Not having gone through residency, I am having a very difficult time finding any job offer/position. I've been searching the web and read that some people in similar situation got through by completing an Internship year in other countries, ie India, China, etc.

    So my questions are:

    Is this the only way to progress for me?
    If so, where are these internship programs?
    How do I apply for them?
    Is the internship going to be accepted by Australia?
    How much will it be?


    We would be so grateful for any help. Thank you all.

    Americans needs to sit the AMC?
    I thought you guys were classed under the "competent authority pathway" where you just undergo a period of "supervision" for a year.
