    It's competitive and the pathway is dependent on whether you are a local graduate with citizenship or PR, or if you are coming in from overseas. Even for the former group, it's difficult.

    What do you mean by having a "degree in ENT"? Are you a doctor who is already trained in ENT overseas?

    The following is a link to the RACS section for IMG doctors who wish to work in Australia as surgeons. It introduces the requirements you would need to fulfil in order to work here. Insofar as doing a "short course" in a sub-specialty, I suspect it would be a matter of finding a fellowship place (which may only entail an observership, and/or an unpaid position).
