General Practitioners Australia
Our client is recruiting General / Family Practitioners for work in a newly built state of the art medical centre outside Melbourne. There is a huge catchment area for this clinic and its services in this rapidly expanding metropolitan area. The client wants a diverse mix of GP origins as the patient base is largely made up of a multi-culture of young families.
Due to this location which is in a metropolitan area, international doctors are limited to work ONLY the out of hours shifts until they get their full Australian Medical Licence.
Day Shifts - 9am to 6pm - Australian / New Zealand qualified GP’s only.
Out of hours – 6pm to midnight & weekends : Open to all nationalities.
The client is looking to fill these roles by way of permanent placement and also hiring locum GP’s to cover their immediate shortage, (options 4-6 week locums, 3-6 month contract with leave of absence from work).
The Client has an approved Employer company that can sponsor 457 Visa holders.
Job requirements as per the Medical Board of Australia – see link for full details:
All candidates must have:
English language skills registration standard
Proof of identity
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) registration standard
Recency of practice registration standard
Professional indemnity insurance registration standard

The General / Family Practitioners will retain 65 / 70% of the fees earned with a typical GP in the practice earning $200k to $300k per year so salaries will range from $150 to 200k per annum.
Due to the pressure on daily appointments many patients are opting to be seen quickly so taking appointments after 6pm which is ensuring the fees are spread across the shifts.
Temporary housing / relocation / flights assistance are all negotiable on a case-by-case basis.
