Can we study PG medicine in Australia. And what is the procedure ?

Ans: Pursuing postgraduate (PG) medicine in Australia is a feasible option for individuals with a strong passion for the field. In general, the steps involved in this process include:

Earning an undergraduate medical degree program from a recognized institution, such as a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) or Doctor of Medicine (MD).
Securing registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) as a licensed medical practitioner.

You should know that there are two options:
1. Non-clinical degree - For example Public health administrator, healthcare management, hospital administration, etc
2. Clinical degree - For example Nursing, MBBS, Physiotherapy, etc

Undertaking a PG medical program in a preferred specialty area, such as cardiology or oncology.

Obtaining specialist recognition from a relevant college, such as the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons or the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
It's important to note that the specific requirements and procedures may vary based on your intended place of practice and the specialty you have chosen to pursue.

hey good morning, this year I completed my mbbs course now I want to do pg in Australia can you please guide me which requirements and what are the exam that I need to clear for pg seat. thank you!
Ans: Hello Munna,

First and foremost, thank you for getting in touch with us. I am happy to hear that you have completed your MBBS and now wish to pursue your postgraduate (PG) studies in Australia. Concerning your question regarding the requirements and exams that you would need to clear in order to pursue your postgraduate medical studies, I would suggest that you follow these steps:

First and foremost, you would need to make sure that your MBBS degree is acknowledged in Australia. The Australian Medical Council (AMC) will need to evaluate your credentials, in order to assess if your degree adheres to the prerequisites for Australian practice. Next, English being the medium of instruction at universities in Australia, you will be required to prove your fluency in the English language through appearing for English proficiency tests viz., the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Remember that following the acknowledgement of your qualifications, a registration application to the Australian Medical Board will need to be submitted by you. To practice medicine in Australia, this is required. I would like to tell you that based on the field of specialization you choose to follow, you may be required to take specialized exams. In order to become a general practitioner (GP), you may be required to pass both, the multiple-choice question (MCQ) exam, as well as the clinical test, administered by the Australian Medical Council (AMC). On the other hand, you might have to clear the pertinent specialty-specific tests for other fields of specializations, viz., internal medicine or surgery. After having been granted admission into a postgraduate program and after having fulfilled all additional prerequisites, you will be required to apply for the necessary visa, to be able to study and work in Australia. The kind of visa you’ll need will depend on your situation and the length of your course. I would recommend that you conduct a comprehensive study on the Australian universities that offer the PG program of your choice. Remember that the application procedure and deadlines may differ between universities, and so, ensure that you gather the necessary paperwork, such as academic marksheets, statement of purpose, and recommendation letters. Also, take into account the tuition costs and living expenses in Australia. Look into the various scholarships and monetary assistance offered by Australian universities to help defray these costs.

In order to acquire recent and precise information, I would suggest that you carefully go through each and every step of the procedure, as well as get in touch with the appropriate authorities or organizations. I wish you the very best for your higher studies in Australia.
