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.
The Medical Board of Australia requires International Medical Graduates to provide proof of English language proficiency for all registration categories unless it has granted an exemption.
Therefore, all applicants are advised to make arrangements to obtain proof of English language proficiency before they apply under any of the assessment pathways.
English language proficiency is a requirement of the Medical Board of Australia, not of the AMC. Therefore, the Medical Board is the body responsible for granting exemptions from its requirement.
The Medical Board of Australia’s English language proficiency requirements, including its conditions for granting exemptions, are set out in detail in the English Language Skills Registration Standard .
