Registration Data

The public national register of practitioners means that it is possible to produce accurate reports on the number of practitioners in each profession in Australia.

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme requires that information about every registered health practitioner in Australia is published on this single national register.

In 2012 the Medical Board began publishing quarterly data profiling on Australia’s medical workforce, including a number of statistical breakdowns about registrants:

Specialist medical colleges’ specialist pathway data

The specialist pathway is for international medical graduates (IMGs) who are overseas-trained specialists seeking specialist registration in Australia (specialist recognition) or who are applying for an area of need specialist level position in Australia. Information about the specialist pathway is available on the Registration page.

Commencing 1 July 2014, specialist medical colleges report their specialist pathway activity directly to the Medical Board of Australia (the Board).

Reporting is annual by calendar year. The Board is publishing the data commencing from the first full calendar year of reporting (1 January – 31 December 2015)
