    its a long procedure..first see if you qualify for a PR (permenant residency) as this is a requirement to be able to do a residency...then you must clear the AMC exams, and then apply to a registrar training program.

    The USMLE is of no help at all in this process.

    RESIDENCY IN AUSTRALIA

    HI. I WANT TO SPEND ONE OR 2 YEARS OF MY SURGICAL RESIDENCY ( I HAVE ALREADY STARTED IN ITALY, I AM ON MY PGY3) IN AUSTRALIA.
    FIRST TAKE THE IELTS TEST.WWW.IELTS.ORG
    THEN GO TO THE AMC.ORG.AU WEBSITE TO SCHEDULE THE MCQ TEST
    THEN IF YOU PASS IT YOU CAN SCHEDULE THE CLINICAL ASSESSMENT THING
    THEN IF YOU GET YOUR LICENSE YOU CAN APPLY AS INTERN, SO PGY1.
    IF YOU AARE NOT INTERESTED IN DOING THE WHOLE RESIDENCY THERE BUT JUST ONE OR MORE YEARS, CONTACT DIRECTLY ONE SURGICAL TEAM AND ASK THEM. BUT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE PAID AND YOU ARE NOT GOING TO RECEIVE ANY OFFICIAL POSITION, LIKE HOUSE OFFICER OR REGISTAR.
    GOOD LUCK

    Residency in Australia

    Australian medical residencies are very long, usually, a graduate spends 2 years as a intern, and then specializes in their particular field of interest. GP residencies take about 3 years while other specialties take about 5, one thing, if you are not a graduate of an Australian school, you are going to have a very hard time practicing medicine there. It is also quite harder for foreign trained doctors in Australia to find work in more desirable locales such as the larger cities in the East Coast.

    Internship per say is a requirement to be a fully licensed doctor in Oz, but its only one year. Some programs are very competitive to get into, or have special requirements thus most ppl work as "RMO" (which is basically after your internship) for a number of years...either that or they aren't sure what they want to do.

    It is possible however especially for GP training to jump from internship directly to your GP program. There are other fields where this is also possible...such as rads and anaest.

    Good news! As of January this year, evidence of Australian Citizenship, Permanent Resident Status or a current application for Migrant Entry is no longer required to be able to sit for the AMC, just a visa to be able to take the tests.

    What are the basics in applying for residency in Australia? Im currently in a med school in Philippines and still looking for possibilities of training abroad. Really clueless about this.

    International Students

    Any International students looking for post graduate training in either NSW or Victoria will be out of luck. It is very difficult to get into training programs in those two states. If you want to study in Australia, and stay there, you will have to go to either Tasmania or Western Australia, where the doctor shortages are more acute. There are other obvious ways to a legal PR which would entitle you to work in Australia(getting married, have a lot of money to qualify as a business migrant). It's a lot easier for other students to stay in Australia after graduation(Pharmacy,Nursing, and Dental) than for medical students. If you are planning on staying here, get a PR first, then apply to the schools of your choice.
