This paper analyses Australia’s growing reliance on overseas trained psychiatrists (OTPs) for provision of public sector mental health services, particularly in rural and regional Victoria. A number of critical issues are highlighted, including State Governments’ and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists’ failure to provide appropriate preparatory and concurrent training to assist OTPs in professional adjustment and reaccreditation, and the failure of governments to pro-actively address the adequacy of future supply.
