What it’s Like to be a Black Doctor in Australia

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a Black Physician abroad? Are race relations any different outside the US?

Today, I’m chatting with Dr.Carmen Brown, an author, blogger, practicing OB/GYN, and founder of ExpatMD, a consulting service that helps physicians live and work in New Zealand & Australia. She’s also the author of ExpatMD: Your Guide to Living and Working in Australia & New Zealand to help American physicians who want to live and work in Australia or New Zealand.

She’s board certified in Australia, New Zealand, and the US and now resides in Melbourne, Australia, with her husband and young son.

And today, she’s sharing her experience as a Black doctor in the US, NZ, and Australia.

Watch now and learn:

  • About the micro & macro aggressions she experienced during her childhood and training in the US
  • What it’s like to enter the patient room as a Black American physician in Australia
  • Why she no longer carries her resume with her
  • Why she felt like a superstar in New Zealand

If you’re thinking, “it can’t be like this everywhere!” this video is for you!

Now I’d love to hear from you!
