Limited registration

Limited registration is available to medical practitioners whose medical qualifications are from a medical school outside of Australia or New Zealand.

These medical schools must be listed in both the current online versions of the Australian Medical Council recognised medical schools and the World Directory of Medical Schools.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they have completed a medical curriculum of at least four academic years, leading to an entitlement to registration in the country issuing the degree to practise clinical medicine.

There are four types of limited registration, granted for different purposes, which allow internationally-qualified medical practitioners to provide medical services under supervision:

Application forms for limited registration are available on the Forms page.
