Preparation Course for the Australian Medical Council Exam
The Foundations of Australian Medical Practice (IMG101) course subject teaches medical knowledge and skills across a wide range of topics and disciplines. The course examines disease processes, clinical examination, diagnosis, investigation, therapy and management. This preparation course for the Australian Medical Council Exam is available online through METC Institute’s advanced Canvas LMS portal. In summary, it includes 21 comprehensive modules that form the foundations of Australian medical practice. These are to be completed over 42 weeks and approximately 1680-2100 hours of study.
The course is supported by unlimited access to course tutors, all of whom are specialist medical practitioners. Course tutors provide expert guidance and clarification, individualised to personal requirements. The course allows mastery of theory necessary for excellent performance at the AMC MCQ Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) Examination. The AMC MCQ Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) Examination is a computer-administered fully integrated multi-choice question examination delivered in one 3.5 hour session in examination centres worldwide. Overall, this course provides AMC CAT Exam candidates with a complete review of the material required to perform at the highest standard in the exam.
IMG101 aims to develop medical knowledge and skills in 6 core topic areas that form the basis of the Australian Medical Council examinations (AMC Exams). Delivered through 21 comprehensive online theory modules, and supported by personalised correspondence with METC Institute’s expert academic faculty, the course aims to maximise candidate knowledge and performance in the following core topic areas:
- Adult Health (Medicine)
- Adult Health (Surgery)
- Women’s Health (Obstetrics and Gynaecology)
- Child Health
- Mental Health
- Population Health
The course also aims to assist international medical graduates (IMG’s) in directing their efforts more efficiently via specific areas of study and tasks that are relevant and important to Australian medical practice. Many IMG’s fail to realise the necessary breadth and depth of study for the AMC CAT MCQ, or specific details relevant to Australian medical practice. Because of this, the course enables candidates to maximise their preparation, scores, and suitability for a medical career in Australia. This is accomplished through the development of knowledge considered fundamental for Australian medical practice.
The IMG101 course takes place over 42 weeks online. Under the guidance of the academic faculty, candidates work through interactive online modules, which direct students through a comprehensive syllabus that develops the foundations of Australian medical practice.
