    Doubtful, you should contact the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, you may be exempt for some training, but you would still need to pass their exams to be certified to practice. Their info on the website is vague, and they leave it up to their members in judging the quality of your training and fitness to practice. <a href="" target="_blank">Royal Australasian College of Physicians</a>
