AMA submission to the draft revised registration standard: specialist registration

The AMA's submission to the Medical Board's consultation on the revised standards for specialist registration is supportive of the objective to simplify the process for Specialist International Medical Graduates (SIMGs) provided outstanding concerns from the medical colleges are addressed.

However, streamlining processes to increase the intake of overseas doctors should not come at the expense of Australia's high medical standards, patient safety and quality care.
