AL­MOST dou­ble the num­ber of med­i­cal prac­ti­tion­ers are em­ployed now than in 2006.

The lat­est Aus­tralian Jobs re­port re­veals a growth rate of 91.2 per cent oc­curred in the oc­cu­pa­tion group in the five years to Novem­ber 2011.

Gen­eral prac­ti­tion­ers also ex­pe­ri­enced a strong growth rate of 36 per cent in the pe­riod.

Jobs growth is stim­u­lated by the de­mand for med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als caused by peo­ple liv­ing un­til they are older.
