Ah yes. So, why do you want to move to Australia (or New Zealand) anyway? Often accompanied by the ‘Oh so you didn’t get into CMT / A+E / [insert name of desired training track] in the UK then?’
Errr no. Actually I didn’t apply, thanks. It’s my dream to move to Australia. I’m not a half-arsed dumb-wit being deported to the colonies as punishment. But if you are planning to go this route you can expect a little bit of skepticism from some of your colleagues...

MTAS (Moving to Australia Soon)

Junior Doctor emigrate to Australia and New ZealandMy dream. Move to Australia. Live by the sea. Have a big house. Meet a nice Australian girl. Laze around in the sun. Fly my plane to a few minor medical emergencies. Retire.
