The top 3 benefits of working in Australia

Australia looks like a dream. With white sandy beaches, a near-perfect climate and some of the most stunning feats of nature known to man – it's hard to resist the country's charm.

Working in Australia as a medical professional has heaps of benefits.

But that's not all Australia has to offer. Working in the land down under as a medical professional has benefits that span beyond the culture, landscape and lifestyle. So what are some of the core professional advantages of working as a doctor in Australia?

Here are just a few.

1. Australia is home to world-renowned health care.

In a study of 11 different national health care models, researchers at the New York-based Commonwealth Fund ranked Australia's mixed public-private system second best. The study found that Australia ranked highest on Administrative Efficiency and Health Care Outcomes, and was among the top-ranked countries on Care Process.

2. Salaries for Australian medical professionals are highly competitive.

It's no surprise that these highly trained professionals get paid well, but the going rate in Australia is handsome. According to PayScale, the average GP earns between AUD $125,000 to $200,000 annually and yearly bonuses can range from anywhere between AUD$1,000 to $50,000. Locum rates can be negotiated but tend to be on the higher end of the scale – making setting up shop in Australia a very appealing option.

3. And the work-life balance can be pretty sweet.

It's hard to ignore just how amazing your life outside work can be when you're living in Australia. With heaps to explore – from beaches to rainforests and everything in between – you'll be spoilt for choice during your time off, allowing you to not just achieve work-life balance but relish in it.
