This is accomplished through the use of multiple Clinical Trial Exams, each with worked solutions, clinical reasoning, exam strategies and references for further study. To develop their clinical reasoning skills, candidates have access to an expert Academic Faculty that consists of Australian specialist medical practitioners with a minimum of 10 years experience in the Australian health sector. This AMC clinical exam preparation course is completed online through the METC Institute’s advanced Canvas LMS portal.
IMG202 includes 10 full-length Clinical Trial Exams (total of 160 cases). The AMC Clinical Exam is an integrated multidisciplinary structured clinical assessment consisting of a 16-component multi-station assessment. It assesses clinical skills in medicine, surgery, obstetrics, gynaecology, paediatrics and psychiatry.

This course allows candidates to develop and refine medical knowledge through case-based learning, to develop exam strategy, to realise and attenuate weaknesses and to develop a higher level of understanding of the concepts required to maximise performance at the AMC Clinical Exam.
