From PROFESSIONAL SERVICES A Doctor's Life In France
Because medical studies in France are organised on a quota system, they have been unable to match increasing demand and France now has a shortage of qualified medical practitioners. There are therefore many opportunities for overseas doctors to make their career in private clinics.

In the French system, there are two choices for overseas doctors: you can either work in the public sector and earn a salary, or enter the private sector and be paid according to your activity.

The private sector gives you freedom of choice: you can choose the region and the city that suit you best.

It is very difficult, even for French doctors, to settle in the very large cities that already have too many facilities and doctors (Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Lille, Bordeaux, etc.). However, there are many other regions where the standard of living is good (charm and diversity, climate, real-estate prices, tourism, etc.) and which have both large populations and too few health services. It offers the best choice for overseas doctors who wish to establish themselves in France: if you’re up for the adventure, you will find both a good income and a good quality of life waiting for you.

You will quickly earn a comfortable income ): indeed the French private sector does not set an upper limit on your activity. More than 60% of surgeries are performed by the private sector, whose high performance equipment and organisational set-up offer safe and timely patient care. Your income will be directly linked to your activity.

A successful private practice requires the trust of your patients. Therefore a necessary condition of your success will be to speak French!
