Australia is a coastal paradise. It has everything from Panoramic Indian ocean views in Western Australia to the hustle and bustle of cosmopolitan cities like Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. You could go whale watching in the Margaret River region, take a gentle walk around the Sydney Opera House or go snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef! Australian Cities rank amongst the most liveable cities on the planet.

Life as a General Practitioner is very flexible and relaxed. You typically see around 4 patients an hour, generate income based on the services you provide and take a percentage of the income generated as your income. Percentage of income is around 60-70% depending on various factors which we can discuss.

A  GP working 40 hours a week with 6 weeks holiday can typically generate billings of around 300 000 AUD to  400 000 AUD.  You then take home your percentage of income generated..  A minimum income guarantee for the initial 3 months is a good safety net as you build up your client base.  This is typically an hourly rate of income the practice guarantees you will earn for the first 3 months but most GPs will be earning in excess of this very quickly in the right practice.

As a contractor you have total control of the hours you work, the number of patents you see and the amount of holidays you take.   A fee for service system in Australia means excellent levels of patient and doctor satisfaction with great continuity of care which is both safe and of high quality.
