Australia Mulls New Accreditation For Overseas Doctors

Australia is finalising an assessment method for the accreditation of medical specialists from abroad, but many fear it could slow down //or even block the placement of much-needed doctors and other health professionals in the country.

Australian Health Minister Tony Abbott has given his support to a national scheme for the accreditation despite a new study that has cast doubts on the plan. Many of the specialists are Indians.

Australian state and territory health ministers will meet in December to hammer out a process of assessing overseas trained doctors.

The study, published in the People and Place journal, found that while there had been some progress in the scheme, there was no immediate prospect for it to go ahead.

The problem lay in the fact that the new scheme could slow down or block the placement of much-needed doctors and other experts in Australia.

The standard of overseas-trained doctors has come under the scanner following the case of India-trained US doctor Jayant Patel, whose practice at a Queensland hospital two years ago resulted in the death of at least 17 patients.

"We have seen from what happened with Patel that when overseas-trained doctors have not been assessed and have ended up in a position of responsibility, there can be real problems," report co-author Bob Birrell told the Herald Sun daily.

Patel, dubbed 'Dr Death' by the Australian media, fled Australia in 2005, just before it was revealed that he had deceived the Queensland Medical Board.

The India-born surgeon has also been accused of fraud for allegedly falsifying his application to practice medicine in Australia, by removing any mention of his previous tarnished record in the US.

Patel studied medicine in India and thereafter went to US, where the first complaint against him was made in 1984 when he was found not to be examining patients adequately before surgery.
