International degrees and practice in Australia: I did my medical degree overseas, how do I become a practicing doctor in Australia?
In order to practice medicine in Australia, overseas trained medical practitioners must register with an Australian State or Territory Medical Board. In most cases, registration is only granted to overseas trained medical practitioners who have successfully completed the examinations administered by the Australian Medical Council. A Medical Board may consider waiving the requirement to successfully complete these examinations in certain special circumstances. Contact the relevant Medical Board for details. Contact details for the State and Territory Medical Boards can be found on the Australian Medical Council website.
