Working as a Doctor in Switzerland


I am an Australian trained doctor and recently married a Swiss man.

I would like to work it Switzerland but am having difficulty understanding exactly what i must do to be able to work here.
As i understand it i must either make a masters in medicine from a swiss uni or work for 3 years under supervision.
I am happy to do either. Unfortunately the universities say they have no places to take foreign doctors for a masters. Also it seems it is difficult to find a job where one can work under supervision as the employer must prove that they cannot fill the position with someone trained in the EU.
Does anyone have any advice about finding a supervised hospital job as a doctor or general advice about having medical qualifications recognised?

Many thanks if you can help!
