Often referred to as the ‘New York’ of Asia, Shanghai is the world’s largest city and has an ever growing population of around 24 Million residents.  As China is opening up to the world, Shanghai is among the chief beneficiaries and in 2016 it was named the most attractive city for expats (for the fourth time in six years) by International Talent Magazine.  Shanghai is home to over 170,000 expats as of 2015.

Shanghai Boasts fantastic downtown nightlife and Night Lights and as the world’s fastest growing city, Shanghai is no stranger to world-class clubbing and pubbing.  On the other side of that, if you are relocating with your family, the first thing ex-pat parents will tell you is that Shanghai is an extremely safe environment.  Chinese people love children and will go to great lengths to entertain and spoil your youngsters at any given opportunity (which can be a little overwhelming and strange at first). With inexpensive domestic help, you will also find yourself, instead of being loaded down with chores, you are able to spend more quality time with your children, taking them swimming, or to the park, or to one of Shanghai’s amazing museums. Eating out is also notably more enjoyable with children in Shanghai as children are welcome everywhere – even in high end restaurants and many also have child-friendly facilities.

What are we looking for?

The hospital is ideally looking for a specialist with one or more of the below:

Certification by one of the medical specialty boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS)
Specialist Certification by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
Fellowship with the Hong Kong Academy or College (FHKAM, FHKAM etc)
Specialist certification from Singapore or Korea
Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT or CCST) awarded by a competent authority of the UK or Ireland
Certification by one of the Royal Colleges in Australia
Specialist medical qualification from Europe/South America
