Please note that as of January 1, 2017 there has been an increase in the fees for all components of the IMGS, AoN and SIT pathways. Please ensure that you use the correct form (below) when paying your fees.

Forms

Throughout your SIMG assessment process you will be required to submit various forms. You can find copies of the most commonly required forms below.


Fees

In Australia, each step of the specialist international medical graduate (SIMG) assessment process has a fee associated with it. SIMG are also required to pay a fee for each year they are part of the SIMG assessment process.This will ensure continuous access for SIMG 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, SIMG are generally only required to pay the examination and workplace-based assessment fees, unless otherwise informed. Should an SIMG 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 fees listed below are in AUD and are inclusive of 10% GST unless otherwise specified.
