New study shows medical compliants aimed at foreign doctors

MEDICAL graduates from foreign countries, including Nigeria and Pakistan, were more likely to have complaints made against them, research revealed on Monday.

A study by the University of Melbourne of more than 5000 public complaints against doctors working in Australia analysed the complaints and doctors' birth country.

The study found Australian doctors who qualified in Nigeria, Egypt, Poland, Russia, Pakistan, the Philippines and India had a higher chance of complaints than Australian-trained doctors.

It found international medical graduates were 24% more likely to attract complaints than Australian-trained doctors, and overseas-trained doctors were 41% more likely to have adverse findings made against them.
