Consultation: Consideration of eligibility requirements for the New Zealand Registration Examination


The New Zealand Registration Examination (NZREX Clinical) provides an opportunity for international medical graduates to qualify for registration as a doctor in New Zealand. Currently, there is no requirement for applicants for this examination to have had any clinical practice experience.

We welcome your feedback on the merits of introducing a requirement that individuals applying to sit the NZREX Clinical must have clinical practice experience and if so, then what that should be.

This consultation closes on Wednesday 24 August 2022.
