The Australian Medical Council is an organisation whose work impacts across the lands of Australia and New Zealand.

The Australian Medical Council acknowledges the Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the original Australians and the Māori People as the tangata whenua (Indigenous) Peoples of Aotearoa (New Zealand). We recognise them as the traditional custodians of knowledge for these lands.

We pay our respects to them and to their Elders, both past, present and emerging, and we recognise their enduring connection to the lands we live and work on, and honour their ongoing connection to those lands, its waters and sky.

Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices and names of people who have passed away.

List of bridging course providers

Bridging course providers offer programs for international medical graduates to assist in preparing for the AMC Standard Pathway (AMC CAT MCQ and AMC Clinical examinations) and to work as a doctor in the Australian health system.

The AMC provides information about known bridging course providers as a service to international medical graduates. The AMC does not endorse or accredit individual bridging programs, and is therefore unable to respond to enquiries relating to any of these providers.

It is your responsibility to check that the aims of the course match your needs.

We encourage you to:

  • Make careful choices about bridging course programs, seeking quality programs representing value for money.
  • Ask potential bridging course providers:
    • how program content aligns with the AMC Specifications for the AMC CAT MCQ and/or clinical examinations and the AMC graduate outcome statements, which define the outcomes expected of newly qualified graduates of Australian medical schools
    • about their trainers’ experience and familiarity with the AMC Standard Pathway assessments (AMC CAT MCQ and AMC Clinical assessment)
    • AMC assessment success rates following course completion.
