2006 World Pool Championship

The 2006 edition of the World Pool Championship is now under way in Manila. A total of 128 greatest pool players of the world troop to the Philippine International Convention Center in Manila for an 9 day gruelling tournament of billiards. The tournament boasts of its rich cash prizes amounting to about US $400,000.

The Philipppine team will be spearheaded by the "Magician" himself, Efren "Bata" Reyes and Francisco "Django" Bustamante, two of the sport's finest.

I will be praying for the best results for the Philippine contingent.

Are you based in the Philippines or in Australia?
Any chance to practice in Australia?
I am sure you are aware that medical practice in the Philippines is on a decline unless you are in medical tourism.

I am based in the Philippines but presently in Australia right now to spend the holidays with all my family. I am also planning to take the Australian Medical Council MCQ exam come February, so my visit here has a dual purpose. Chances of practicing medicine here in Australia is high provided you pass the written and oral Australian medical board examination.

Are you a Filipino doctor?? Why use anonymous?

I am a filipino doctor. Unfortunately, I am in a surgical subspecialty. Is it possible for one to enter Australia being a surgical subspecialist?
From what I have heard, they are looking for GP, Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine specialists only.

you are right, GPs (Family Medicine), Anesthesiologists, ER meds are the ones needed here. If you are willing to practise as a GP here, its financially satisfying and easier to penetrate than the States.
