Do you hold general or specialist registration with AHPRA?
Have completed at least two years of postgraduate hospital experience in Australia or comparable country?
Have you obtained or hold a position in a post accredited or accreditable for the relevant AST? (if in doubt refer to our page)

Congratulations, you are eligible to apply. Contact us for more information.

It is strongly recommended that applicants have undertaken a rotation or other experience in their chosen discipline before they undertake training at an advanced level.

While all AST disciplines require a doctor to have a minimum of two years postgraduate experience, the College strongly recommends that doctors have additional relevant experience prior to undertaking an AST in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, Adult Internal Medicine or Remote Medicine.
