Medical Board of Australia - Supervised practice for international medical graduates - Guidelines and Forms

All international medical graduates (IMGs) who are granted limited registration or provisional registration must be supervised. Supervision remains a requirement of registration for the duration of the IMG’s limited or provisional registration.

The Board’s Guidelines - Supervised practice for international medical graduates came into effect on 4 January 2016.

The revised guidelines replaced the Guidelines for supervised practice for limited registration.

The Guidelines apply to all IMGs with limited registration or provisional registration. The Board expects all IMGs and their supervisors to follow the revised Guidelines from 4 January 2016.

Further information about supervision is available on the MBA Supervision page
