Although it has an important role in maintaining medical standards, little is known about the work of the Australian Medical Council (AMC) by members of the medical profession. A non-statutory standards authority, the AMC accredits medical schools in Australia and New Zealand, examines overseas-trained doctors for registration purposes and advises Medical Boards and Health Ministers on registration issues. The AMC, in consultation with Specialist Medical Colleges and others, is currently working on a number of initiatives to ensure standards of medical training and practice, including procedures to recognize new specialties and to accredit externally specialist education and training courses.
