  2. Hi Anthony,

    Your blog posts have been very useful. Thank you!

    I’m a UK FY2 doctor looking into the options for pursuing T&O in Australia. I understand the pathway is essentially
    1) Resident level job in T&O
    2) Unaccredited Reg job
    3) Training Reg job

    I understand training positions (3) require PR/citizenship. Is this the case for 1 and 2 too? If it is not a requirement, am I disadvantaged as a UK citizen/UK grad?

    Best wishes,


    1. Hi Raj,
      First, Its important to note that I am not a migration agent. So don’t give personal advice re visas etc…

      Generally you wont have problems getting a resident level or unaccredited training job. By this time you may even be eligible to apply for permanent residency.

      PR/citizenship is not always required. Its generally only a limitation for more popular specialties e.g. surgery, anaesthetics etc…

  3. Hi Anthony,
    Just saw your you tube videos for IMG specialists they are really useful!
    I am a cardiologist practising in India, and wish to apply through the specialist assessment pathway.
    I have 2 queries:
    1) do you have any statistics on the number of cardiologists who apply and how many IMG cardiologists are deemed partially or substancially comparable, esp from India?
    2) If I am partially/ substancially comparable in need to find a suitable job positon for myself. How do I go about that.

    1. Hello, Amreen we only get stats per college. Not to the level of subspecialties. I know of doctors who have achieved SC in cardiology. But that’s not really the real battle. Finding a job to be supervised in will be the real battle as cardiology is super competitive here.

  4. Hi. I am an anesthesiologist in Cuba. Do I have the opportunity to apply for a work visa in Australia? How is it the procedure ?

  5. Hi. I am an anesthesiologist in Cuba. Do I have the opportunity to apply for a work visa in Australia? How is it the procedure ?I want to apply through specialized evaluation

    1. Hello, I’ve not had any approaches from Cuban doctors before. Anaesthetics is quite competitive here. If you would like a step-through of the process and prospects I suggest a strategy call.

  6. Hi Anthony,

    I was wondering if it makes any difference applying after FY2 or Internal Medical Training 3 in the UK?
    The training pathway in the UK is Medical school – FY years – IMT 1 2 3 – Registrar.

    Would my level of experience be taken into account? So say if I apply after IMT 2 or IMT 3, could I obtain my general registration after 1 year and then apply for registrar posts?

    I am interested in cardiology which I understand is a very competitive post.

    Looking forward to hearing back,

    1. Hi Jasmine,
      It doesn’t really matter in terms of doing the year supervised under Competent Authority. Depending on how much IMT training you have done and what exams you have completed you might get some RPL with the RACP.

      I’d suggest booking a strategy call and we can go over it in more detail for you.

  7. Hey,

    Once an IMG has completed basic physician training and passed the RACP exams, how difficult would it be for that IMG to get into advanced training in Cardiology? Are these advanced training Cardiology posts shut off to IMGs?

    1. There are no residency or citizenship requirements for RACP training. That being said you must also gain a job with an employer. So the employer may choose to overlook you due to your need for a visa. Cardiology is super-competitive so even Australian graduates miss out.

  8. Hi Anthony
    If you are successful in being selected for basic Physician training are you guaranteed entry into an advanced training program?
    For example if I was interested in Gastroenterology or Endocrinology would I apply for those specialties when applying for basic training, or would I complete the three years of basic training with the “hope” of being selected for the advanced training programs?
    If the later, what happens to the basic trainees that are unsuccessful at getting on advanced training programs after the completion of basic training?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Richard. With the RACP there is no guarantee of entry into Advanced Training. You need to complete BPT which generally is a minimum of 2 years and clear both the written and clinical exam. After which you can apply for selection into advanced training.

  9. Hi Dr. Anthony
    Would you be placed at a lower priority when applying to RANZCP or RACGP without an Aus PR?
    I’m an international medical student studying in Aus and heard that it is quite difficult to find a hospital to sponsor a resident medical officer that doesn’t have their PR yet, but being in a training program would make things different. If you could help me confirm/deny this that would be appreciated.

    1. For psychiatry possibly. But as psychiatry is always needing trainees you are still likely to be offered a post.
      Same for GP. But you will have to do the rural pathway.

    1. Happy to guide you I suggest booking one of my strategy calls.

      Good Afternoon

      Thanks for your query

      The process of becoming a doctor in Australia can be confusing.

      In order to best help you, I would recommend you book one of our Risk-Free Clarity Calls. (Or you might prefer to call this a Strategy Call).

      These are reasonably priced. And you can book straight after payment.

      If you don’t feel you get value from the call I offer a no questions asked refund policy.
