After Licensing Examination

Period of Assessment

After passing the Part III Clinical Examination, a candidate is required to undergo the period of assessment for a period of normally 12 months in an approved hospital. During the period of assessment, the intern will receive clinical instructions to familiarise himself/herself with the local medical system and commonly-found diseases. Upon successful completion of the period of assessment, he/she is eligible to apply for registration as a medical practitioner.

A candidate who has passed the Licensing Examination (i.e. passed all 3 parts) should commence the period of assessment on either 1 January or 1 July of the following year, unless deferment of the period of assessment has been granted.
Regarding the exemption, reduction and deferment of the period of assessment, please refer to " Guidelines 3 - Period of Assessment: Exemption, Reduction and Deferment" for details.
