dc.description.abstractThere is an increasing international movement of physicians, with substantial numbers of International Medical Graduates (IMGs) now seeking jobs outside the countries in which they were educated. For IMGs there are potential elements of crisis and loss associated with this transition. This article presents findings from Australian-based research which explores the IMGs' experience during entry to their chosen country and posits the need for a designated liaison officer to help support the transition. The research was based on thirty open-ended, qualitative interviews which were coded and thematically analyzed. The findings document factors associated with the decision to leave their country of origin, psycho-social aspects of stress experienced upon arrival in Australia, and the participants' perspective on the suggestion for the appointment of a hospital-based liaison officer to assist IMGs during the transition process.en_US
