The Australian Medical Council
The Australian Medical Council (AMC) is the Australian national standards advisory body for medical education and training.
The examination comprises of 2 parts, a multiple-choice exam and a clinical examination.
The Multiple Choice Questionnaire (MCQ) is a test of the principles and practice of medicine in the fields of internal medicine, paediatrics, psychiatry, surgery and obstetrics and gynaecology. A number of questions on each discipline also have a focus on general practice.
The Clinical Component of the Amc Exam consists of an entire morning or afternoon spent assessing your clinical skills though stations. These scenarios will contain a clinical scenario and you will be asked a number of tasks – most of the time it is essentially generic – a short clinical preamble, and then ‘Take a history and proceed’ as your instruction.
