If you’re a health professional living overseas, there is now an even better reason to make the move to Victoria.

Support for international heath workers

As of 1 April 2022, international and returning Australian health workers are eligible for up to $13,000 to help fund your relocation to Victoria and join one of our many, highly regarded health services.

There are a range of employment opportunities in the Victorian health care system where you can:

  • Get more work-life balance and a change of scenery in a part-time role in one of our regional services
  • Challenge yourself in an entirely different setting by joining one of rural and remote services
  • Be at the forefront of medical research and innovation in one of our Melbourne metropolitan services

Victorian patients are highly engaged in their care, and over 90% of adult patients rate their experience as good or very good. We have one of the highest life expectancies in the world, one of the lowest infant mortality rates, and are consistently rated amongst the top 10 health care systems globally.

We know that the engagement and satisfaction of our workforce is critical to positive healthcare outcomes and investment in the wellbeing of our workforce post-COVID is a sector and Government.

The success of the Victorian system is driven by the conditions and benefits offered to the health workforce. Learn more about the range of opportunities in more than 200 public Victorian hospitals, and how we can support your relocation at health.vic.gov.au.
