The Australian Medical Council is the accreditation authority responsible for accrediting education providers and programs of study for the medical profession.
Under the National Law, the Australian Medical Council is responsible for developing accreditation standards for the approval of the Board. Accreditation standards are used to assess whether a program of study, and the education provider that provides the program of study, provide persons who complete the program with the knowledge, skills and professional attributes to practise the profession. The AMC undertakes regular reviews of accreditation standards and in developing or revising accreditation standards, the AMC must undertake wide-ranging consultation about the content of the standard.
Accreditation standards take effect on the day that they are published on the Board’s website.
