Registration standards define the requirements that applicants, registrants or students need to meet to be registered. The Medical Board of Australia has developed the following registration standards:
Mandatory Registration Standards
With the exception of registered students and non-practising registrants these standards apply to applicants for registration and registered medical practitioners.
These standards apply to international medical graduates who do not qualify for general or specialist registration.
The Ministerial Council has approved a list of specialties, fields of specialty practice and specialist titles. The list of specialties, fields of specialty practice and related specialist titles is available below.

Approved List of Insurers
The Board’s registration standard on professional indemnity insurance states that practitioners must be insured or indemnified for each context in which they practice. In private practice, this is usually professional indemnity insurance. The Board requires that this be with an approved insurer.
The Board approved the following insurers which meet the minimum product standards that apply to all medical indemnity insurers as defined in the Medical Indemnity (Prudential Supervision and Products Standards) Act 2003 (Cwlth):
- Medical Indemnity Protection Society Limited (MIPS)
- Medical Insurance Group (MIGA)
- MDA National
