The WBA program is an alternative to the Standard Pathway (AMC 2 Examination) and leads to the awarding of the AMC certificate and eligibility for general registration.
The goal of the Standard Pathway WBA program is to ensure that an IMG possesses an adequate and appropriate set of clinical skills to practice safely within the Australian Health care environment. WBA is additional to the normal supervision requirements that apply to all IMGs and doctors in training.
