Changes to the format and delivery of the AMC Clinical Examination for International Medical Graduates

The AMC has been developing an alternative method of delivering the AMC Clinical Examination in response to COVID-19 to avoid a long-term postponement of the examinations and enable AMC candidates’ continuation of their examination pathway towards registration for practice in Australia.

The alternative clinical examination will be delivered online initially via the Zoom platform, although in the longer term other delivery methods will be examined.

This document outlines details of the new examination format to be introduced by the AMC.

Ongoing communication and engagement with examination candidates is a priority for the AMC. Examination candidates will be provided with further information as the AMC progresses. It is expected the next stage of communications will occur toward the end of November 2020 regarding intended recommencement dates. Where possible, information will also be provided earlier.

The safety of all examination participants and the community and the maintenance of the highest standards continue to be the paramount considerations for the AMC.
