Cancellation of National Test Centre (NTC) in-person Clinical examinations for 2021


Due to the current and ongoing Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns throughout Australia and consideration of the health and safety of examination participants, the AMC has found it necessary to cancel the AMC National Test Centre (NTC) in-person clinical examination dates scheduled for the remainder of 2021. This includes the following dates –

  • 5/6/7 October 2021
  • 19/20/21 October 2021
  • 19/20 November 2021
  • 3/4 December 2021

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the AMC has been successfully delivering online clinical examinations in 2021. Recognising the Covid-19 pandemic has created challenges and opportunities for positive change in medical education and assessment, the AMC has been working toward further development of the AMC Assessment pathway. The AMC is continuing to work towards conducting both the online clinical examinations and recommencing in-person examinations in 2022 to accommodate candidate demand.

A significant amount of work has been undertaken to ensure that recommencing the AMC’s in-person clinical examinations can be achieved in a safe manner according to government health guidelines and restrictions.

With the cancellations of the NTC clinical examinations for the remainder of 2021, the AMC will endeavor to provide as much notice as practical to participants and where possible reschedule examinations to online events or future 2022 examination dates.

Candidates scheduled in the above listed cancelled examination dates will be offered alternate examination dates. Communication regarding the rescheduling will be emailed to candidates directly.
