    Job prospects of dermatologist in Hong Kong

    Hi,
    I am a dermatologist from India, completed post graduation diploma in dermatology, with 6 years of practice experience. I would like to know about the scope of work and chances of recruitment of dermatologists in Hong Kong. Do hospitals recruit dermatologists or take them for general practice initially? Also, what are the exams to be given to get licensed for practice? Would appreciate your help in this regard.

    Dr.Sandeep

    Surely a medical specialist with six years of practical experience should be able to at least start figuring out this kind of thing without having to resort to asking random strangers on the internet?

    NO chance in hell if you've been told by an agent and been charged $$$$ for your QMAS application.

    Well, I did quite a bit of research, but havent been able to find concise results for the same.Diverse opinions on the same elsewhere compounds the problem right? Thats why asked here for clarity.

    Yes, I did read about lots of replies like this before. But one of my acquaintances who lives in HK said that the stringent rules for recruitment of doctors from abroad have been relaxed a bit.

    But, have you paid an agent for your QMAS application?

    Chances are low for a non fluent Cantonese speaker.

    It is now 20 years after 1997.

    This topic has come up before and it seems like you need to pass this exam to practice.
    The Medical Council of Hong Kong - About Us

    Sorry to say this (and sound racist), but as (presumably):
    - You don't speak Cantonese.
    - You don't have a western medical degree
    your chances are very low.

    Try the UK/ US/ Australia.

    And if the immigration agent tells you Australia is the next prime place - just remember my government (Australia) just changed the rules and you will need to pay a pretty sum to the board to get certified via examination (and practicals if necessary) - you will be able to get a work visa . You just cannot use it for permanent residency (separate application - no direct conversion). Even the UK doctors are getting hit in Australia now.
