International Medical Graduate Information


This section of the HETI website has been developed to provide you with information and education about working in the Australian healthcare system, to aid your transition into the Australian workforce as a doctor.

It offers a wide range of resources to help with this transition, including general information about living in Australia and a list of frequently asked questions.

You can view the Guidelines for the Supervision of Medical Observers in NSW Hospitals for further information if you are undertaking a medical observership as an International Medical Graduate, or if you are seeking employment as a medical practitioner but have not yet passed the Australian Medical Council clinical exam.

Professor Balakrishnan (Kichu) R Nair AM is HETI’s District Director of Medical Education. In this video, he talks about the challenges of migrating to a new country coupled with working in a new healthcare system and provides an overview of the international medical graduate webpages.
