Once you have successfully completed all requirements of your individual program you will be informed that you may apply for admission to fellowship of ANZCA/FPM. If you have completed the SIMG process in Australia, we will also support your application for specialist registration with AHPRA at this time. A copy of the AHPRA Report 2 (or equivalent letter) will be provided to you with a copy also submitted to AHPRA. You will need to contact AHPRA directly to arrange an application to change your registration to specialist registration.

The process of applying for Fellowship will usually take approximately 10 business days once all required documentation is submitted.
