This role can be so rewarding - not only do we assist doctors to achieve their career and financial goals, but a large number of hospitals genuinely struggle to find doctors and it is so rewarding to know that the work we do makes a big difference in these areas.

The general practice market in Australia

General practitioners (GPs) are in high demand in Australia, especially to work in regional, rural, and remote areas. The average annual salary for GPs in Australia is $350,000. Locum GPs are earning up to $3,500 a day.

A career as a general practitioner (GP) is gratifying because you can come home from work each day knowing you have made a valuable contribution to Australia's communities.

To become a GP in Australia, you must complete medical school and become a fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). You can choose to include rural practice training in your program.

Doctors first. Then Jobs. That's our difference.

Life as a doctor demands you give everything. Dr Sam Hazledine learned this first as an intern. Years later Medrecruit was his response. Sam successfully lobbied the World Medical Association to amend the Declaration of Geneva (the modern-day Hippocratic Oath) to include:

I will attend to my own health, wellbeing, and abilities in order to provide care of the highest standard.

Medrecruit continue to advocate for, educate and work towards better health and wellbeing for all doctors.
