If you are a specialist or a specialist-in-training in a country other than Australia and you intend to undertake short-term training (fellowship training/medical conferences) in Australia (no more than two years), you are not required to undergo assessment through the AMC, but you may need to have your qualification/s verified for registration purposes. The ECFMG International Credentials Services (EICS) verifies the qualifications with the institution that issued your qualifications.
The AMC assesses your application and required documentation (as per the checklist included in your application form) to determine your eligibility to apply.
Once you have secured a training position, you need the approval of both the specialist college and the Medical Board of Australia. The application form for assessment by a specialist college can be found on the Medical Board of Australia website.
If you already have an AMC candidate number, apply by submitting the Primary Source Verification Application: Specialist-in-Training Form available on the forms page of the AMC website.
If you do not already have an AMC candidate number, you can apply online through the candidates portal.
