Where exactly is "the west". If you lived in the UK medical/hospital care is free. Doctors earn a good salary and do not rely on a % of the treatment/hospital stay/drug costs to make up low salary. (Perhaps the reason why drugs are expensive in your hospitals?)

Doctors train in teaching hospital for several years in the various disciplines, taking exams continously until they decide which type of medicine they wish to specialise. They then work as junior doctors alongside a highly experienced and skilled specialist for further training.

It includes NZ as well but funnily enough, we're in the south.

ON TOPIC; I've worked in a hospital in China and have met some fine medical staff and some not so fine. I'm sure that once the fine ones passed NZ quals, they could practice in NZ but the not so fine ones, nope!

I actually have one of my first friends in China now in NZ working as a nurse in a NZ hospital and she's doing fine.

Good to hear exported. It really should only be based on whether the medical professional applying to practice can actually do what they need to be able to do.

I have a feeling though that things aren't as rosey as we would like to believe and that racial discrimination comes into it. I don't know about NZ but Australia has consistently practiced racist immigration policies, while immigration officials are often encouraged to make racist decisions.

For all the haters, my source is two former immigration officials I know who both left the service in disgust over their colleagues behavior and their own moral conviction not to take part in discrimination.
