Are doctors in demand in Australia?

Yes! There are permanent and locum positions nationwide for doctors. Doctors are in high demand in Australia for multiple reasons, the first is an excess of jobs available in rural and remote regions that need filling. The second is that Australia's ageing population is growing, creating a demand for more general practitioners. A career as a doctor is highly respected in Australia, and you will feel like you are an important and integral part of the community.
