The Board has an approved a registration standard for Granting general registration as a medical practitioner to Australian and New Zealand medical graduates on completion of intern training that defines the requirements that Australian or New Zealand medical graduates must meet to be granted general registration.
There are different requirements for Australian and New Zealand medical graduates depending on where they completed their medical internship.
If you hold provisional registration, you can apply for general registration online.
Australian and New Zealand medical graduates who have completed an accredited internship in Australia or New Zealand
Australian and New Zealand medical graduates who completed a medical internship in another country
If you have previously been, or are currently registered in a health profession in Australia under the National Scheme and have therefore provided information to a Board previously, some of the documentation requirements for registration may be waived. In most cases, the application forms indicate whether a requirement or document is waived.
All documents submitted to support an application for registration must comply with our requirements for certifying and translating documents.
You may be required to submit additional information in support of your application to help the Board determine whether you are suitable for general registration.
