About DoctorConnect

This website has been developed by the Australian Government Department of Health for doctors trained outside of Australia and Australian medical employers

The DoctorConnect website has been developed by the Department of Health to assist doctors trained outside of Australia or doctors interested in incentives to work in regional, rural and remote Australia as well as Australian medical employers.

While continuing to actively address the shortage of Australian trained doctors, the Department is also attending to the immediate medical needs of those communities in areas of workforce shortage through other initiatives, including the recruitment of appropriately qualified OTDs.

In addition, the Rural Health Workforce Strategy (RHWS) offers a number of incentives to assist and support doctors in relocating and practising in regional, rural and remote Australia.

If you have any questions about the site or if you would like more information, please contact us with your query.
