International Medical Graduates

This research project is commissioned by the Australian Medical Council (AMC) to evaluate the Workplace Based Assessment (WBA) program. The WBA program seeks to provide international medical graduates with an alternative assessment option to gain the necessary recognition and approval required to practice medicine in Australia.

The aim of this evaluation is to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the WBA and its impact on the long-term outcomes of international medical graduates who have attempted the program.
