I’m overseas trained, how do I register as a General Practitioner in Australia?

International Medical Graduates (IMGs) whose medical qualifications are from a medical school outside of Australia or New Zealand, and who are seeking registration to practise medicine in Australia, must provide evidence of eligibility to undertake one of the following assessment pathways:

Competent Authority Pathway

This is for International Medical Graduates looking for general registration and have passed the AMC exam with the relevant practical component.

Standard Pathway

If you have not yet completed a recognised internship or appropriate period of supervised practice, this pathway may be relevant for you.

Specialist Recognition

This is for International Medical Graduates who hold a specialist qualification obtained outside Australia and are applying for recognition that their qualification is comparable.

Area of Need

If you are an International Medical Graduate applying for a specialist position in a designated area of need in Australia, this pathway could be relevant to you.

The assessment process assesses the knowledge and clinical skills of IMGs seeking to qualify for medical registration in Australia.
The pathway will be different for each individual IMG.

To decide which pathway is right for you, you can complete an initial self-assessment check with an overview of the pathways provided as a guide.

Most IMGs will only be able to undertake a period of supervised employment in an Area of Need or District of Workforce Shortage. Priority areas are usually in regional and the more remote locations which are home to some of Australia’s most breathtaking landscapes, plus financial incentives for working in more remote areas are often provided too.

Correct working rights for Australia
If you are intending to work in Australia, you will need the correct visa to support your intended stay.
