How to Register With the Australian Medical Council (AMC)


Okay. I’m doing this quick video because I’ve heard this question more than once. The question is, how does one register with the AMC or the Australian medical council So why would you be asking this question Well, the reason for that is that any international doctor who is endeavoring to come to Australia to work, uh, does need to register with the Australian medical council or the AMC first. Uh, for some that may be as part of the start of a process to, uh, come through what’s called the standard pathway and do the AMC examinations, but for others, um, specialists, then you still need to register with the IMC. And the purpose for that is actually just essentially to check your primary medical degree to the degree in medicine that you earned from the other country that you’re coming from. So you do this quite simply, you go to the AAMC website, amc.org, uh, you, uh, then you need to go to verifications and examinations. Um, and there’s some handy information here that explains the pathways for working in Australia. Uh, and you can see here the first step for all IMG seeking registration through any pathway in Australia, uh, is primary source verification. So this is where they check your primary medical degree. Uh, and this is done through the educational commission for foreign medical graduates or the epi C center that’s in the United States. But the uh, the check is actually handled by the Australian medical council. So a, to register with the Australian medical council, you have to establish an AMC portfolio. Uh, and this is the link that explains how you do that. Uh, so again explains that you’re required to submit your primary qualifications, uh, create the EPC account, show you what that looks like. Ah, so this is the website for EPO C and establish a portfolio for processing by the AAMC. So you will require an API for the ID to be able to complete the portfolio application. So the way you go about this is click on the AMC portfolio. You need to sign up for an AMC online account. You pop your email in sever password, you sign up. Like most sites, you get emailed a confirmation and that gets you registered in the system, and then you can go through all the other steps to establish your portfolio and registered with the AMC so that when the epi C is completed on your primary medical degree, as well as your S your specialty medical degrees, if you’re going through any specialist pathways, again, the AMC will be notified. So that’s how you sign up or establish yourself with the Australian medical council.
