Are doctors in demand in Australia?

Yes! Doctors are in high demand in Australia for multiple reasons, the first of which is an excess of jobs available in rural and remote regions that need filling. The second reason is that Australia's ageing population is growing, creating a demand for more general practitioners.

A career as a doctor is seen as a very respected profession in Australia and you will feel like you are an important and integral part of the community.
