Are you considering a change in employment? MDSearch can help you discover your ideal practice setting at no cost. MDSearch has established wide-ranging contacts with the medical community across Canada, and globally through regional partners in Australia and the UAE. We pull together up-to-the-minute information on career prospects and openings around the world, freeing you to consider the possibilities without the legwork.
We work with our physicians and medical practitioners to ensure clarity on all of the details of the offer, and assist with your application process.
Immigrate to Canada
Our expertise can help place physicians from the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and the US on a fast path to practicing in Canada.
When working with an interested physician, we collect up-to-the-minute information on licensing requirements, as well as vacancies that are not publicly advertised, freeing you to consider the possibilities without the legwork.
Make a move to Australia or New Zealand
The opportunities are endless for physicians interested in practicing in Australia and New Zealand, where credentials from Canada, the US, Ireland and the UK are considered equivalent for General Practitioner and Family Medicine.
During your strategy session with our Australia and New Zealand Concierge, you can decide on a wide range of indicators that a job offer is the right match for you. MDSearch will assist throughout the process, from work visas to medical registration and travel arrangements. We will handle everything you need to find a position – before, during and after your placement.
There will be some one-off costs associated with relocating to Australia and getting yourself ready to work in a GP job. Our Australia and New Zealand Search Concierge will negotiate on your behalf to get some of these costs reimbursed by your new employer, and will help you identify which establishment expenses are tax deductible.
Canadian Family Physicians wishing to work in Australia should possess a Certificate in Family Medicine from College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), American Board, or full unconditional registration in a country with a comparable health system to Australia and New Zealand.
Compensation in Australia and New Zealand is consistent with income generated by physicians in Canada and in the US.
Change locations to the Middle East
MDSearch has developed a list of handpicked job offers in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afganistan and Nigeria. The expat culture is vast in the region, with people from all over the world living and working in the area, particularly in Dubai.
Physicians seeking placements in the Middle East will receive personal assistance from a Dubai-based Search Concierge. During your strategy session, the Concierge will guide you through the process, from work visas to medical registration and travel arrangements. We will handle everything you need to find a position – before, during and after your placement.
Physicians wishing to work in the Middle East should possess Board Certification or equivalent from UK, Canada, the US, Ireland, Australia, NZ, or select Western European Board Certification with 3-5 years experience post-Boards.
Spend time on locum in Mexico
Take a work vacation or sabbatical in Mexico. Medical tourism is growing and Mexico’s proximity to the US has led to it become a top destination for Americans in search of quality, affordable medical and cosmetic treatments.
In popular destinations, including Mexico City, Merida, Playa del Carmen, and Cancun, clinics and hospitals are very modern and feature state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. Many facilities are staffed with English-speaking physicians and medical personnel that are US Board Certified. Patient rooms are typically quite large and many are private.
MD Search will guide you through the immigration, certification, and insurance process. Our Mexico-based Search Concierge will keep you informed of new opportunities that match your skill set and are suited to both your professional, lifestyle and availability.
We take responsibility for the management of your scheduling and travel needs, thus eliminating much of the guesswork that comes with working with traditional Global locum firms.
