The Ministry of Health and Medical Services will be conducting interviews in India next month to recruit specialists for Fiji.

“Based on the applications, we will be going there and interview specialists to be based here in Fiji,” said Minister for Health and Medical Services Rosy Akbar.

Ms Akbar said she and Health permanent secretary Philip Davies were looking into getting some specialists to Fiji after their planned trip to Geneva.

Mr Davies and Ms Akbar will be attending the World Health Assembly in Geneva next month when they will make a transit stop in India and interview doctors who applied from India.

Mr Davies said the vacancies for 170 doctors had been advertised locally and internationally.

“This is to ease the doctor shortage in the hospitals and health centres,” he said.

“In addition to local recruitment, we are also using the internet and social media to bring the opportunities to the notice of doctors internationally.

“Interviews for qualified doctors from India might be conducted as early as next month.

“We will be attending a world health assembly in Geneva which is the big annual event for us and it is the opportunity we have to stop over to India.

“We are not just going to India to recruit doctors but making the best use of time and travel cost.”
