Please contact the Global Medics Australia team to be directed to your dedicated consultant for advice on which pathway to Australian registration is most relevant to you.
We assist with various pathways to registration:
An English Language Proficiency test is required for all international medical graduates who require registration in Australia.
Exemptions may apply when the applicant can provide evidence of secondary education and/or tertiary qualifications in the relevant professional discipline in the UK, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa or the USA, where English is the native or first language.
Applicants will need to submit evidence to the AHPRA of competency in speaking and communicating in English by having completed an English Language Test to the following standard:
International medical graduates will require a Certificate of Good Standing (COGS) to be registered with AHPRA. Note that these Certificates of Good Standing must be sent directly from the Licensing Authority to AHPRA. You may not have these in your possession. AHPRA will not accept faxed copies.
Applicants are required to apply for an international criminal history check (ICHC) from an AHPRA approved vendor, who will provide the ICHC report to the applicant, and directly to AHPRA. ICHC results are valid for three months from the date of issue.
