Workplace-based assessments

All international medical graduate specialists (IMGS) who are determined to be substantially comparable to a Fellow of ANZCA will be required to successfully complete an IMGS workplace-based assessment (WBA). An IMGS workplace-based assessment is a comprehensive one-day assessment undertaken at the hospital approved for your clinical practice assessment (CPA) period.  The IMGS workplace-based assessment is usually undertaken towards the end of your CPA period.  You must have successfully completed at least six months of CPA (with at least three months at the hospital in which the IMGS workplace-based assessment will be undertaken) before arrangements for your IMGS workplace-based assessment can begin.  The College will write to you prior to this time to begin arrangements for your IMGS workplace-based assessment.

 

The IMGS workplace-based assessment will be undertaken by two Fellows of ANZCA, one assessor will observe your morning and afternoon lists while the other will conduct interviews with staff chosen by you.  Both assessors will meet with you in the afternoon to undertake case-based discussions.

 

After the IMGS workplace-based assessment, ANZCA directors of professional affairs will review the assessors’ finding and the outcome of the IMGS workplace-based assessment will be sent to you.
