Hi Eyedoc

Healthcare in Mauritius is divided into two segments, public and private. Your best bet would be in a private medical institution as there are some conditions attached to the recruitment foreigners like salary and competency. I'm sure of the latter you being a US-trained medical professional.
If you can prove you can bring some new practices, ideas and methods not available in Mauritius, you will find your way.

Good luck!

Thanks Kevin.  I will keep trying.

Did you get to Mauritius? Can you share your journey? I am wondering how to get there as a uk optom... Thanks
