IMGS fees & forms

Each step of the international medical graduate specialist (IMGS) assessment process has a fee associated with it. All fees may be paid by credit card (Visa or MasterCard only) or cheque or money order, using the appropriate forms.

 

In Australia, IMGS are required to pay a fee for each year they are engaged in the IMGS assessment process. This will ensure continuous access for international medical graduate specialists to the ANZCA Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program and recognises that ANZCA services are provided to candidates who have completed the clinical practice assessment period but have not completed the assessments. In New Zealand, international medical graduate specialists are only required to pay the examination and workplace-based assessment fees. Should an IMGS in New Zealand wish to join the ANZCA CPD Program, they will need to pay the non-Fellow fee and should contact the ANZCA CPD unit to discuss access (cpd@anzca.edu.au).

 

All the forms required by international medical graduate specialists in their dealings with the College can be found below. If you cannot find the form you are looking for, please contact the College on +61 3 9510 6299 or email imgs@anzca.edu.au.
