Too sneaky by half: plan to keep local Australian doctor numbers low, assorted documents, 2009


88.80.13.160

The Australian Department of Health and Ageing (DHA) has set out to constrain the number of doctors graduating, despite supply shortages which have seen the country poaching medical staff from the developing world.

A FOI request executed on the DHA returned among other documents, document C160.

A portion of that document is blacked out because the DHA claims it was contrary to public interest to reveal the information.

The DHA action serves to highlight the Deparment's political sensitivies.

Makes you wonder if they will be doing this in other countries like the US. Seems like there would be a major public outcry about this sort of thing going on when the need for doctors is high in most countries not just Australia. I do know losing the professionals that you train is a major problem even in the military probly even more so in the military. But you van't use that as a reason to limit the amount of doctors in a country.

Up North, in Canada this same sort of affair is ongoing, but on a regional level and the problem is most apparent on the east coast. No surprise as it, too, is a puppet state of the UK and has a nearly identical political structure as Australia. Sometimes even the "prime ministers" read from the exact same script. A real, truly sovereign country has a president, does it not?

It's shameful as the quality of doctors from near third world countries is very very low. The language barrier is also thick and fortified. Some train for less time than an average apprentice auto mechanic and read the quik notes version of courseware. Not to put down mechanics or anything, just saying that human biology is a much more dynamic and changing field than mechanical subjects.

I guess you get what you pay for!

I read how in Canada they were limitting the number of people who could do a residence at any given hospital. It was making it such that not every graduate from the universities was actually getting a residency and therefore was restricting the number of doctors. Plus there were British (and other foreign) doctors with years of experience living in Canada driving taxis because they had to go through a residency to get a license in Canada and they couldn't get into a slot at a hospital.
