I am Dr. Carmen Brown. I am an author, blogger, practicing obstetrician/gynecologist and managing partner and founder of ExpatMD. I currently reside in Melbourne, Australia with my husband and young son. I am board certified in the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
I moved to practice in New Zealand almost ten years ago due to burnout and I have become passionate about helping other physicians realize the option to live and work overseas. After assisting several doctors find jobs in either New Zealand or Australia, I decided to start ExpatMD, a full service consulting firm dedicated to helping American doctors achieve their dream of becoming an expat.
