WE HAVE DOCTORS DRIVING CABS IN AUSTRALIA WHILE THEY WAIT IN LIMBO....ARE THE KIWI'S WRONG...MAYBE WE CAN LEARN



ARE THE NEW ZEALANDERS RIGHT AGAIN

Migrant doctors forced to take up jobs such as taxi-driving will soon find it easier to join the health profession, even if it's at a lower level.

Under the scheme, being promulgated by Health Workforce New Zealand, new doctors to the country will be assessed much faster and given the training they need to get a job.
Those who lack a good grasp of English and come from countries with below-standard medical education often find it difficult to get work in their profession.
Health Workforce New Zealand chair Des Gorman says not every migrant doctor will meet the standard for registration under the scheme.
But it will, he says, enable those doctors to gain entry into the profession as health assistants or technicians.
