Career options for a foreign medical graduate?
posted on Saturday, 05 February 2011 14:41

I am 47 years old, Filipino, a doctor of medicine graduate and a psychiatry specialist trained in the Philippines.  My husband has been working here in Hong Kong since 2008 and I work part-time as a psychiatrist in an international clinic in Guangzhou. Since my degree in Medicine is not recognised here in Hong Kong, I am looking for other career opportunities related to my field. Any suggestions? Do I need to pursue further studies to make my resume more attractive? Your comments would be very helpful.

You have to take local exams for non-British-Commonwealth medical practitioners to be qualified to work as a medical officer, or I'm afraid it'll be difficult to find a job related to your field here.

Alternatively, you may try pharmaceutical companies to see if they could use your knowledge.
