  6. Hi there Llewellyn,

    Thanks for your informative post!

    My wife graduated overseas and in her 2nd year of residency, planning to specialize in ophthalmology. She is not a permanent resident yet, but will become soon. Do you think it is realistic to hope that she can redo her residency in Australia without permanent residency (but with eligible partner visa) and gain specialty in ophthalmology following that (and hopefully she will be an Australian permanent resident)? How does ophthalmology field look in terms of competition for international graduates?

    Thanks for your input in advance.


    1. Anything is possible. Ophthalmology is hard to get into. I’d recommend your wife take a clarity call with me.
