The AMC Clinical Examination is an integrated multidisciplinary structured clinical assessment consisting of a 16-component multistation assessment. It assesses clinical skills in medicine, surgery, obstetrics, gynaecology, paediatrics and psychiatry. It also assesses ability to communicate with patients, their families and other health workers.

If you have passed the AMC MCQ Examination, you are eligible to apply for the AMC Clinical Examination.

The dates for the Clinical examinations are found on this website, please click here. There are specified examination dates and defined closing dates. All final dates are subject to change. In the case of any changes to examination dates, the AMC will notify candidates well in advance in order for candidates to be able to apply for alternative dates.

Clinical examinations are now held at the Australian Medical Council’s Vernon C Marshall National Test Centre (NTC) in Melbourne.

Clinical examinations are held on both weekdays and Saturdays throughout the year. This allows candidates with religious convictions to schedule in either a weekday or weekend examination.

You may only apply for one Clinical examination at a time. If you have been scheduled for a Clinical examination, you may not re-apply for another Clinical examination until you have received your results from the scheduled examination.
