Can I Get a Job with Just AMC Part 1 Result ?

The Australian Medical Council (AMC) conducts assessments for international medical graduates (IMGs) who wish to work as doctors in Australia. The process typically involves several steps, including the AMC Part 1 and AMC Part 2 exams.

After passing the AMC Part 1 exam, you have a few options:

  1. Proceed to AMC Part 2: Many IMGs choose to take the AMC Part 2 exam after passing Part 1. This exam assesses clinical knowledge and skills and is an important step toward meeting the requirements for registration as a medical practitioner in Australia. Successfully completing both Part 1 and Part 2 exams is often necessary to increase your chances of finding a job as a doctor in Australia. But Passing Ratio for AMC Clinical is very low as compared to AMC part 1 (60%), AMC part 2 has passing ratio of 28%. So it’s practically very hard to crack this exam but there some other options through which you can bypass this Exam and directly Get into Residency program in Australia. We will describe these pathways in the next section.
  2. Apply for Jobs: While you can technically apply for jobs in Australia with your AMC Part 1 result, it may be more challenging to secure a position without having completed the full assessment process. Some employers may prefer candidates who have successfully completed both Part 1 and Part 2 exams, as this demonstrates a higher level of readiness to practice medicine in Australia.

Ultimately, while you can apply for jobs with your AMC Part 1 result, completing the entire assessment process, including Part 2 and the clinical assessment, will likely improve your prospects of finding a medical position in Australia and obtaining full medical registration.

The specific requirements and processes may vary depending on the state or territory in Australia where you plan to work, so it’s important to check with the relevant medical authorities and regulatory bodies for the most up-to-date information on the requirements for IMGs in your desired location. We describe these medical authorities next:

Australia is divided into six states and two territories, each with its own health department responsible for healthcare services and administration. Here’s a brief overview of the health departments in each state and territory:

  1. New South Wales (NSW):
    • Health Department: NSW Health (Website)
  2. Victoria (VIC):
    • Health Department: Department of Health, Victoria (Website)
  3. Queensland (QLD):
    • Health Department: Queensland Health (Website)
  4. Western Australia (WA):
    • Health Department: Department of Health, Western Australia (Website)
  5. South Australia (SA):
    • Health Department: SA Health (Website)
  6. Tasmania (TAS):
    • Health Department: Department of Health, Tasmania (Website)
  7. Northern Territory (NT):
    • Health Department: Department of Health, Northern Territory (Website)
  8. Australian Capital Territory (ACT):
    • Health Department: ACT Health (Website)

Each of these health departments oversees the healthcare system, public health initiatives, hospitals, health policies, and other healthcare-related matters within their respective regions. The healthcare system in Australia is primarily publicly funded and administered through a combination of federal, state, and territory governments.

each state and territory in Australia often has its own recruitment and job application portal where international medical graduates (IMGs) can search for job openings, upload their documents, and apply for positions. These portals are crucial during recruitment drives. While the URLs for these portals may change or be updated, I can provide you with the general format and guidance on how to find them during recruitment drives:

  1. New South Wales (NSW) Health:
  2. Victoria (VIC) Department of Health:
  3. Queensland (QLD) Health:
  4. Western Australia (WA) Department of Health:
  5. South Australia (SA) Health:
  6. Tasmania (TAS) Department of Health:
  7. Northern Territory (NT) Department of Health:
  8. Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Health:

During recruitment drives, these portals are typically active and allow you to register, upload your documents, and apply for relevant medical positions as an international medical graduate. Make sure to regularly check these portals for updated job postings and recruitment schedules.

After submitting applications, which may take several months to review, the recruitment agencies will shortlist candidates based on exceptional CVs, strong English proficiency, successful completion of internships demonstrating competent skills, and other qualifications. Shortlisted candidates will then be contacted via phone or email to schedule an online interview. Successful candidates at this stage are likely to receive a job offer.

Upon receiving a job offer, candidates become eligible to apply for limited registration through the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). This initiates a 12-month supervised practice at the workplace.

During the 12-month supervised practice, candidates have two options:

  1. Proceed with the AMC Part 2 exam.
  2. Apply for a Work-Based Assessment (WBA) if the place of practice is acknowledged by an AMC-accredited authority.

What To Do While Searching For A Job?

This is a frequently asked question. In my view, it’s important to stay proactive while waiting to secure a job. Apply for any suitable positions you come acrossβ€”don’t assume lack of experience eliminates your chances. If you haven’t passed the AMC clinical exam, prioritize preparation and aim to pass it as soon as possible. Keep your IELTS/OET scores up to date and maintain certificates for all your work experiences. Ensure your registration in your home country remains current and that there are no gaps in your work history there.

If you’re in Australia, consider seeking some form of healthcare job. Certain courses like Advanced Life Support (ALS) and CPR can enhance your CV, and some positions may require a valid ALS certificate before you begin. If you’re in Australia, obtaining a valid Working with Children check is advisable, especially as it’s now a requirement in NSW and is free (you simply need to provide an NSW address). Many individuals pursue a Level 4 nursing certificate, which can help secure a position in a nursing home as a care assistant.

Check websites like www.seek.com for job opportunities and look for volunteer work in healthcare, such as in nursing homes or children’s camps. If you aspire to become a GP, plan for the Pre-Employment Structured Clinical Interview (PESCI). Seek observer-ships and approach heads of departments and GP clinics, expressing your dedication. Contact IMG-friendly hospitals like Wollongong, Royal Perth Hospital, Charles Gairdner Hospital, and send them your CV.

Ultimately, the more effort you put in, the more opportunities you’ll uncover. Extend a helping hand to others, and you’ll find fortune on your side.

We have Given a list of Some of the IMGs Friendly Hospitals in the Last section

English Language Assessment:

AMC Exams: English language assessment is not a requirement to sit in AMC exams.

AHPRA Registration:

  • Demonstrating English Proficiency: Internationally qualified applicants for medical registration or applicants who qualified for medical registration in Australia but did not complete their secondary education in English must demonstrate the necessary English language skills for registration purposes.
  • Mandatory Requirement: English language proficiency is a mandatory requirement for AHPRA registration for all applicants for initial registration.
  • ll applicants must demonstrate English language skills at IELTS Academic level 7 or the equivalent.
  • The required minimum score must be achieved in each component of the IELTS Academic module, OET, PTE Academic, or TOEFL iBT.
  • Test results must be obtained within two years of applying for registration.
  • The Board may grant an extension in specific circumstances.
  • If you have studied in a specific recognized country, you may be exempted from the English language assessment.
  • However, if you don’t qualify for an exemption based on your country of study, you will need to achieve the required scores in any of the specified English language proficiency tests.

The minimum requirement to get a doctor’s job in Australia is passing AMC MCQ and English language assessment (unless you have successfully applied through specialist or competent authority pathway). Once you have satisfied these requirements, you need to apply mostly online to vacancies according to the eligibility criteria.

Internship

While technically not a mandatory requirement, completing a minimum of a 12-month internship is highly crucial to secure a medical job in Australia. Practically, it’s exceedingly challenging to obtain any medical position in Australia without this internship experience. Internship opportunities are predominantly available to Australian graduates, making it difficult for doctors with limited overseas experience to secure internships and subsequently find a job. For those facing these challenges, gaining additional experience or exploring alternative options is advisable.
