Divisional Clinical Examination

The 2020 Divisional Clinical Examination has been postponed until 2021.

This decision was made following careful consideration of the impact of the current COVID-19 situation. All eligible candidates will be able to provisionally progress to Advanced Training in the new clinical year.

More information about provisional progression will be available shortly. Trainees will get at least 3 months’ notice of new exam dates.

The 2020 Divisional Clinical Examination for Adult Medicine (AM) and Paediatrics & Child Health (PCH) are hosted in venues across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand.

The exam assesses your clinical and interpersonal skills and clinical acumen to determine if you’ve reached the standards required to complete Basic Training.
