June 2019 Clinical Examination Registrations
Due to changes to the Clinical Exam, from June 2019, places
available to present for the exam will be extremely limited and we
are expecting to reach capacity. Registrations for the CE will now
be staggered, according to the priority assigned to
- Tier 1 candidates: registrations open midday (AEDT) on
Wednesday 6 March 2019 until midday (AEDT) Wednesday 3 April
- Tier 2 candidates: registrations open midday (AEDT) on
Wednesday 13 March 2019 until midday (AEDT) Wednesday 3 April
- Tier 3 & 4 candidates: While it is difficult for us to
predict candidate numbers, unfortunately it is unlikely there will
be capacity for Tiers 3 & 4 candidates in the June 2019 CE,
however we expect there to be capacity in the October
2019 CE. Please check back here for updates or contact the Examinations Department for any
