Australia is all set to open five Examination Centres in India. These centres would serve the purpose of recruiting for overseas doctors as Australia is fighting an acute shortage of medical professionals. In the present scenario, the hopeful candidates appear for the concerned examination in testing centres in far-away places like Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai or London.
The proposed five centres would come up in major metros like New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai. This makes a lot of sense as India is biggest contributor of trained overseas doctors migrating to Australia. Indians from India, U.K. and South Africa form a large percentage of annual overseas recruitments Down Under.
