    In July 2006, the Council of Australian Governments (a meeting of Australia's national, state and territory leaders) announced a new national process to assess international medical graduates.

    The Competent Authority Pathway is for international medical graduates applying for non-specialist positions, or, for those international medical graduates working in general practice area of need positions (as deemed by the relevant state office of the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Association) and who have completed specified training and assessment through approved overseas 'competent authorities'. Such international medical graduates are eligible to apply for 'advanced standing' towards the AMC Certificate. A person granted advanced standing is not required to sit the AMC MCQ or Clinical Examinations, but must undertake a workplace-based performance assessment by an AMC accredited authority while working under supervision.
