    This is what the AMC website says about competent authority pathway:

    The Competent Authority Pathway is intended for overseas-trained non-specialists, but it is also available to specialists, including general practitioners. If you have passed the examinations or you have completed training through an AMC‑designated competent authority, you can apply to the AMC for assessment under this pathway. The AMC-designated competent authorities are:

    General Medical Council (United Kingdom—for the PLAB examination or for graduates of GMC-accredited medical courses in the United Kingdom)
    Medical Council of Canada (LMCC)
    Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates of the United States (USMLE)
    Medical Council of New Zealand (NZREX)
    Medical Council of Ireland (graduates of medical courses in Ireland accredited by the Medical Council of Ireland.

    If the AMC is satisfied that you are eligible for this pathway, it issues an Advanced Standing Certificate, which enables you to apply to the Medical Board of Australia for limited registration. Once granted limited registration, you undertake 12 months supervised practice with an accredited provider. If you satisfactorily complete the supervised practice period, the AMC issues your AMC Certificate, which enables you to apply to the Medical Board of Australia for general registration.
