Updated Information from AHPRA

Graduate Applications - Medical

Students due to complete an Australian approved program of study can smooth the path from study to work by following the six steps to registration for graduates.  Relevant information regarding this process can be found on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA’s) website at www.ahpra.gov.au/Registration/Graduate-Applications.aspx.

Most graduates applying for provisional registration can do so online.  To assist you with your application, frequently asked questions are also available on the AHPRA website.

Please note that as part of the application process, you will need to meet a number of the Medical Board of Australia’s registration standards.  These include the Board’s criminal history registration standard and the English language skills registration standard.  Applicants are also required to declare whether they have an impairment that detrimentally affects, or is likely to detrimentally affect, their capacity to practise the profession.

Depending on the information provided regarding an applicant’s ability to meet a registration standard or a declaration relating to criminal history or impairment, some applications may require consideration by the Board.  In these circumstances, AHPRA recommends that applications, including supporting documentation, are submitted as soon as possible (generally six weeks before completing your course) to ensure your application is finalised in time for you to commence your internship on the scheduled date.

Medical Board of Australia English Language Requirements

There has been a recent modification to the Medical Board of Australia's English Language skills registration standards.   This means that you may need to demonstrate English language proficiency – please ensure that you check this early to avoid disappointment.
