High Commissioner for Pakistan Babar Amin met Mr. Philip Pigou, Chief Executive Officer of Australian Medical Council (AMC), today, to discuss establishing its examination centres in Pakistan.
The High Commissioner informed the CEO, AMC, about Pakistan’s medical education system that has produced medical professionals of international standards, who were serving with great dedication and distinction all over the world including USA, UK, Canada and Australia. He highlighted that the unavailability of AMC’s Examination Centres for foreign medical graduates, in Pakistan, however, deprived most of Pakistani doctors the opportunity to appear for the Australian Exam.
The High Commissioner proposed to the AMC to establish its examination centres in Pakistan taking into consideration Pakistan’s population of 207 million and its large pool of qualified and able doctors. He assured the CEO that the High Commission would facilitate AMC in this endeavour.
Mr. Philip Pigou, CEO, AMC stated that his office would certainly explore the possibility of conducting MCQS (Part-I) of AMC Exam, in Pakistan, through its partner agency. He agreed to discuss the matter further after doing some more background work by the AMC.
