Australia

The State and Territory Medical Boards have agreed on a uniform national standard for English language proficiency for the registration of overseas trained doctors. With effect from 1 July 2005 the following provisions will apply

For an AON job you need to be registered with a state board and hence require the same lamguage proficiency. The scores also need to be recent ie within the last 2 years

Medical Boards will require an applicant for registration to have completed the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination (Academic module) with a minimum score of 7 in each of the 4 components.

Alternative English proficiency tests that will be accepted are:

A pass in the Occupational English Test (OET) administered by the Centre for Adult Education with grades A or B only in each of the 4 components

A pass in the English language component of the United States Medical Licensing Examination [USMLE previously ECFMG] but not the TOEFL component of the current USMLE

A pass in the Professional Linguistic Assessment Board (PLAB) examination in the United Kingdom; or
A pass in the English language proficiency component of the New Zealand Registration Examination (NZREX).

These English language proficiency standards will apply to all applicants for assessment through the AMC.
