Q: Can anyone advise the best way to apply for family medicine physician jobs in Shanghai?

I’m hoping to move to Shanghai with my young family of children aged 2 and 4. What’s the best method and most family friendly area to live/work? I only speak English (although currently learning Mandarin for fun) I am british born and trained with over 10 years of medical experience.

 

many thanks

You'd be best finding a job before you think about where to live...

 

Only way I can think to find jobs there is to search for all the private Western hospitals/providers and apply direct...

These are from expats living in Shanghai, I would choose Pudong myself. The first one is dated last year so it is reasonably up-to-date, the second is dated 2015.  

 

The fact thay you have children means a good neighborhood is vital, so you may want to give location priority and search for work around that area.  There is no conflict between the two as a good location usually comes with good jobs.

Is there a reason you are hopng to move to Shanghai? There really are better destinations and easier ones to get a job with your NHS qualifications.

Practical question time:  you say you're bringing a 2 and 4 year old with you?  What do you plan on doing with them while you are at work?  If you plan on putting them in daycare, what do you think suddenly being in a completely foreign place where they know no one and can communicate with no one is going to do to them psychologically?  

 

Also, are you prepared for strangers to come up to them and treat them like zoo animals, randomly touching them and giving them food/candies?  This happens to bi-racial children, so I would be curious to see what would happen to full foreign looking children. 

 

Also, kids get snatched here regularly, so make sure that you keep a close eye on them. 

 

Please, consider the physical, emotional, and psychological welfare of your children before forcing them to change their entire world.

You could consider contacting Medicine San Frontiers. Do a year in the field to get your Mandarin up to scratch, then apply for Shanghai jobs when your kid needs full time school. I am not sure if MSF operate in China, but for sure, such experience would massively increase your understanding and empathy towards Chinese medical issues.

A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
