Recognition of international training

mini传媒入口 welcomes doctors, specialists and subspecialists from around the world to apply for recognition to practice in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand.

Introduction

The College offers a number of different pathways for international medical graduates interested in training and working in obstetrics and gynaecology in Australia or Aotearoa New Zealand.

These pathways can be grouped into three main categories:

International medical graduates (IMGs) 鈥 for international doctors seeking to undertake further training in Australia or Aotearoa New Zealand.

Specialist international medical graduates (SIMGs) 鈥 for international specialists and subspecialists seeking to work in Australia or Aotearoa New Zealand.

Short-term training (STT) in a medical specialty 鈥 for international specialists (or doctors nearing completion of specialist training) seeking to gain short-term experience in Australia only.

For more information on these pathways, please see the corresponding sections below.


International medical graduates (IMGs)

If you’ve completed undergraduate medical training outside of Australia or Aotearoa New Zealand, you may be eligible to apply for one or more of the training pathways outlined below.

Fellowship of mini传媒入口 specialist training

The Fellowship of the mini传媒入口 (Fmini传媒入口) training program is the only means through which a medical professional in Australia or Aotearoa New Zealand can become a specialist in obstetrics and gynaecology.

mini传媒入口 involves 184 weeks (four years) of Basic mini传媒入口, followed by an additional 92 weeks (two years) of Advanced mini传媒入口.

Basic mini传媒入口 includes:

rotation through a minimum of two different hospitals, with at least 46 weeks in a hospital other than your 鈥榟ome鈥 or 鈥榖ase鈥 hospital, and 23 weeks in a rural hospital

logged clinical work in obstetrics and gynaecology resulting in attainment of prescribed competency levels in specified procedures

utilisation of resources through the mini传媒入口 e-learning platform

formative and summative assessments, including three-monthly appraisals and six-monthly assessment reports

experience in gynaecological oncology

Advanced mini传媒入口 involves completion of relevant Advanced mini传媒入口 Modules (ATMs), and a focus on:

extending your expertise in obstetrics and/or gynaecology

developing your research expertise

developing your expertise in areas of special interest

For more information on the Fmini传媒入口 training program, including the National Trainee Selection Process, please see our Fellowship of mini传媒入口 Specialist mini传媒入口 page.

Non-accredited registrar training

Non-accredited registrar training provides IMGs with experience working in a metropolitan or suburban hospital in Australia. It’s an alternative option for international doctors who are not eligible for the Fmini传媒入口 specialist training program.

While some IMGs use this pathway to successfully apply for the Fmini传媒入口 program, it’s important to note that non-accredited registrar training:

is organised entirely by the employing hospital and does not include any formal assessment by mini传媒入口

cannot be counted towards the Fmini传媒入口 qualification under the mini传媒入口 Recognition of Prior Learning Policy

does not guarantee selection into the Fmini传媒入口 training program

For information about appropriate registration and visa requirements, please contact the Medical Board of Australia in the state or region in which you wish to work.

Certificate and Procedural training

The College offers a three-tier structure of qualifications to equip IMGs with experience in office-based and/or hospital-based obstetrics and gynaecology in Australia or Aotearoa New Zealand.

Each qualification builds upon the knowledge and skills developed in the preceding qualification, as outlined in the table below. These qualifications can be undertaken separately or concurrently.

Alternatively, please email the SIMG team in Australia ().


Short-term training (STT) in a medical specialty (AUS)

If you’ve completed (or nearly completed) specialist training in obstetrics and gynaecology outside of Australia or Aotearoa New Zealand, you may be eligible to apply for short-term training (STT) in a medical specialty.

STT posts in obstetrics and gynaecology:

enable international medical graduates to gain valuable experience in Australia (not Aotearoa New Zealand), and then return to your country of practice

are usually offered at the registrar level by major metropolitan teaching hospitals

are usually for a period of 12 months (but may be extended for an additional 12 months in exceptional circumstances, subject to approval by the College)

do not involve formal assessment, or result in a qualification or certification

must be approved by the College as a genuine training post (and not a post designed to meet a staffing need)

Please note that employing hospitals must initially advertise training posts within Australia. If no local candidate is found, the hospital can then advertise the position abroad as an STT post.

The College will not support an STT post that compromises the opportunity for a Fmini传媒入口 trainee to be appointed to the position or to engage in specific training opportunities within the workplace.

Eligibility

To undertake STT in obstetrics and gynaecology, you must be registered with the Medical Board of Australia, and also be:

qualified in Medicine and Surgery, with a primary degree recognised by the Australian Medical Council and World Directory of Medical Schools

qualified as a specialist in your country of training or no more than two years away completing your specialist training

Apply

To apply for STT in obstetrics and gynaecology, you must:

1

Secure an STT training post with an employing hospital

2

Apply for primary source verification of your medical qualifications with the Australian Medical Council

3

Ensure that your employing hospital has lodged an STT application with mini传媒入口, including:

Form

Additional documents

a position description

a detailed training program, including:

name of approved supervisors

training timetable

a statement indicating that you will attend and participate in any appropriate professional development opportunities available within the training period

a brief description of the objectives of the proposed training and how your progress/performance will be evaluated at the end of the training period

a written statement that your appointment will not disadvantage any trainees in the College’s training program

4

Lodge your own STT application with mini传媒入口, including:

Forms

Additional documents

primary source verification of your medical qualification

a certified copy of your primary medical degree (and specialist degree, if applicable)

certificates of membership with any relevant medical bodies

a brief summary of why you wish to undertake the post

a statement of intention to return to your country of origin on completion of training

payment details for the application fee

5

Complete and submit the following form to apply for limited registration with the Medical Board of Australia:

6

Apply for a training visa for a period of up to two years

To minimise delays in processing, please ensure that the information and documentation you provide is true, accurate and meets the specified criteria.

The Chair of the mini传媒入口 mini传媒入口 Accreditation Committee in your state will review your application, and then the Chair of the mini传媒入口 and Accreditation Committee will provide final authorisation. This process may take up to six weeks.
