How to have your experience recognised
If you are not already working in New Zealand, you need to apply to the Medical Council of New Zealand for a practising certificate and provisional vocational registration as a general practitioner before applying to become a Fellow of the College. Once you have obtained a practising certificate and provisional vocational registration as a general practitioner, there are a number of pathways to Fellowship depending on your prior experience and training.
