- Excerpt from Judgments:
New South Wales. Medical Tribunal -
Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) v Saedlounia  NSWMT 13 -
This case concerned an Iranian trained medical practitioner who was granted limited permission to practice in Australia due to restrictions imposed under his 457 visa. Any medical practice was required to be supervised (as his qualifications were not recognised in Australia), and only at specific locations. Between 2007 and 2011, breaching these conditions, he practiced medicine unsupervised and unauthorised at different health institutions, whilst lying about his employment history.
The Tribunal had to determine three primary questions:
1. Had the practitioner breached his visa conditions by working unauthorised and unsupervised?
2. Did the breaches individually amount to unsatisfactory professional conduct?
3. When taken in aggregate did these breaches amount to professional misconduct?
