Specialist Training

Australian universities do not have responsibility for the training for medical practitioners wishing to become specialists. Programs of training, examinations and the standards of performance to be achieved are set and administered individually by the recognised specialist medical colleges.

Entry to the various specialties requires the completion of an accredited internship, postgraduate study, experience in approved hospitals and the passing of examinations, administered by the specialist colleges.
