    The first thing to do is to look at this website:

    http://www.doctorconnect.gov.au/

    It is a government website with a fair amount of information for IMGs

    then, look at:

    http://www.amc.org.au/index.php/img

    The AMC website has the different training/working pathways for IMGs.

    Then, for your peds training:

    http://www.racp.edu.au/page/becoming-a-physician/overseas-trained-doctors-and-physicians/overseas-trained-physicians-australia

    For obs and gobs, you'll want to go here:

    Dear Friend

    Thanks you for the website links given , that was very helpful ,

    I did not find salary details for obg & gyn in obg gyn ..I would like to know I already have given 10 yrs for Medical eduction in my home country INdia , If one further dedicates 4-5 yrs for overseas fellowship / internship in OZ

    what are present salary range as obg gyn specialist one can expect for IMG after completion of 4-5 yrs in Asutralia ...OR possibilities in private practise ...also considering nos of medical graduates increasing in Oz post 2011 due to increase in medical schools

    any body has information on above
