Clinical examination events and dates


Commencing with the 2015 AMC Clinical examinations, a new and improved scheduling process will be available to all eligible candidates. The new process, which includes enhancements to the candidate portal and the availability of information, has been designed to assist and improve the candidate experience when scheduling for clinical examinations.

Candidates will be able to view the exact examination dates and the number of available positions for each examination using the new process. Once an examination is open for scheduling, candidates can directly apply for their preferred examination date and select their payment method (credit card or cheque). Once payment has been successfully processed, a placement letter confirming candidate examination details will be available to download via the candidate portal.

Please note for all Clinical examination scheduling in 2018, the scheduling open time will be 10:00am AEST.

Changes to the Clinical Examination Scheduling Process

Recently, the AMC was required to cancel clinical examinations due to a significant number of candidates scheduling for examinations but not accepting the AMC offer of examination placements. For example, in the August and September months, all the available clinical examination positions were oversubscribed by candidates. However, only 58% of candidates who applied and scheduled for specific examination dates accepted the AMC offer of placements. This resulted in the need to cancel examinations.

As a result, the AMC is currently updating the scheduling process for candidates to schedule online for AMC Clinical examinations. With the next release of scheduling dates due in August 2018, initial developments will be completed with further enhancements continuing on subsequent scheduling release dates for 2019 examinations onwards.

The initial developments and updated scheduling process will allow candidates to view available examination dates on the AMC website as they are released.

For the October – December 2018 Clinical examinations, the AMC will release the examination dates as below. Please note that further examination dates will only be released once exam placements in the open available dates have been filled –

Exams Open Scheduling Close Scheduling
October Exams 22 August 27 August
November Exams 28 August 3 September
December Exams 4 September 10 September

The above dates are the remaining Clinical examinations for 2018. Should the October – December examinations be oversubscribed, the AMC may include additional examinations in February 2019.

To confirm, the new scheduling process includes –

  • Enhancements to the candidate portal and the availability of information, which has been designed to assist and improve the candidate experience when scheduling for clinical examinations. Please note scheduling is on a first come first serve basis as candidates apply through their candidate portal.

  • Candidates will be able to view the morning and afternoon sessions for each available examination date. Once an examination is open for scheduling, candidates can directly apply for their preferred examination date and make payment by credit card. Please note payment of the examination fee is ONLY accepted by credit card.

  • Once payment has been successfully processed, a placement letter and receipt confirming candidate examination details will be available immediately to download from the candidate portal.
