Where You'll Be Working

As a Barefoot GP, you'll work in our own up-to-date medical Centres in mainstream Australian locations in the states of Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.

The Nitty-Gritty

As a part of this program, we will work with you to ensure you have 3 consecutive days off in a row each week to explore and do as you please. In exchange, we require that each barefoot GP works:

  • On a 15 month contract (short and sweet so you don't have to be afraid of a long commitment. We also have many options for you to stay permanently if you want to stay!)

  • You will rotate locations every 3-6 months. Our Program Manager will work with you individually to develop your itinerary before you come to Australia - no surprises!

  • You'll work for 38 hours a week which includes 3 evening shifts (6pm-10pm) and 10 hours over the weekend. This will give you a wide range of exposure to different patient types across our Centres.
