An invisible workforce?

To the Editor: International medical graduates on temporary residency visas now make up a substantial proportion of the rural medical workforce. Anecdotal reports suggest that many make the transition to professional life in Australia reasonably well, in terms of both cultural adaptation and applying their professional skills, even though the level of educational assessment and support may vary considerably. However, there are some disturbing reports of a few such medical practitioners who perform poorly and are moved on, perhaps to another state.
