    Hello po, doc. I have read your comments and posts po regarding how to practice medicine in Australia. However, I have a question po. How about po if I don't have any plans to practice in Australia but to just have training and then will go back to Philippines. Is there a separate pathway and rules about this? Do I need to have AMC exams? Thank you very much po for responding. Have a good day po :)

    im a recent board passer here in the philippines.
    I need advice on the following.. i hope u can help me po :)
    1. How hard is it to get to practice in australia?
    2. How much will the total cost be from the reviews, exams, processing fees etc from start until you achieve a license in australia
    3. How long will the total duration (estimate) be for the whole application until you acquire a general registration in australia?
    4. Is it still advisable to aspire practice in australia or should i just stay in the philippines?
    5. is it true the australian govt is already discouraging IMGs?
    6. Is it advisable for me to start residency here while applying for australia or should i do moonlight instead?
    7. is it possible for me, a filipino doctor, to be accepted in a residency program in australia? perhaps surgery or Ob? or onlyIMG are only allowed to practice as GPs in australia..

      1. How hard is it to get to practice in Australia? It can be challenging to clear the exams and find work here. Each person has a different experience, some doctors clear the exams both part 1 and 2 within a year but most doctors take longer than this. The passing rate for part 1 used to be 52%, but now it seems to be a bit higher. For clinical exam it's much lower and can be as low as 11%, can be as high as 33%. In regards to finding work in the hospital, it's easier if you have a permanent visa or if you're an Australian citizen, but there are still hospitals who provide visa sponsorships.
      2. How much will the total cost be from the reviews, exams, processing fees etc from start until you achieve a license in Australia? Exams part 1 ~$2.7k, part 2 ~$3.5k, processing fee has also increased to ~$500; review part 1 ~$3.3k, part ~$6k, then the books cost ~$300 each, but you can purchase a 2nd hand one or have it reprinted there in manila
      3. How long will the total duration (estimate) be for the whole application until you acquire a general registration in Australia? So it depends on how long it will take you to clear both exams, if you would be able to clear the exam in a year then get a job let's say in 6-12months, then work for a year as a general rotation RMO as part of the requirements to gain general registration, you can get the general registration after ~3 years.
      4. Is it still advisable to aspire practice in australia or should i just stay in the Philippines? It's hard to say because this would depend on each person's individual circumstances. But, personally, I think practicing here in Australia is better than in the Philippines.
      5. is it true the australian govt is already discouraging IMGs? Currently, there has been increasing number of local graduates and international graduates here in Australia, but I think they earn a lot from providing AMC exams so they just keep on letting IMGs take the exams but make it more difficult for us to get jobs because they would prioritise local and international graduates when recruiting doctors in the hospital.
      6. Is it advisable for me to start residency here while applying for australia or should i do moonlight instead? I think it would be easier to prepare for the exams and look for jobs if you're moonlighting.
      7. is it possible for me, a filipino doctor, to be accepted in a residency program in australia? perhaps surgery or Ob? or onlyIMG are only allowed to practice as GPs in australia.. You can still get into residency training

      Hope this helps. Just pm me if you have any other questions.

    Ate, kamusta po kayo? I'm from Davao City originally but I'm based here in Sydney for 5 years now. Still on student visa but nothing is happening. Life's so hard here. So I'm planning to move to Adelaide hoping to gain RSMS sponsorship. I have extensive Accounting and administrative Australian experiences and I'm a great office worker. I really just need a good breakthrough.

    Three things that are of immediate need for me: a cheap bedroom to rent, a job, and on desperate move a recommended college to study a new diploma course. Please help me.

      Hi Ruel, kelan nyo po plano pumunta ng Adelaide? Bago kayo lumipat, start ka na magapply ng work tulad sa seek kasi natagalan ako makahanap ng work dito. Cheaper ang rent dito kaysa sa Sydney and marami naman nagppost dito ng bedroom for rent kaya di kayo mahihirapan makahanap nun. Ano po work nyo ngayon and ano plan nyo kunin na diploma?

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
