This orientation manual has been designed to complement hospital based orientation programs and aims to provide doctors who have recently arrived in Australia with information that will help them settle into the community and function effectively.
The manual is presented in three sections:
- Section 1: Essential things every doctor and their family must do soon after arriving in Australia.
- Section 2: Basic information about how the health system operates.
- Section 3: Support and community services for doctors and their families in Tasmania

The Department of Immigration and Citizenship also has a comprehensive and relevant document called 'Beginning a Life in Australia' which gives lots of useful information about our health care system and services available for newly arrived migrants. Visit the website for more information.
