The Australian Medical Council (AMC) undertakes accreditation of medical student teaching programmes for all medical schools in Australia and New Zealand. The Otago Medical School holds accreditation of the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MB ChB) degree with the AMC until 31 March 2025. This followed an accreditation process throughout 2018 which was accepted by the Medical Council of New Zealand in May 2019, awarding us full accreditation for the maximum period available with minimal conditions and a pleasing number of commendations.
Staff are able to view the accreditation documentation on the MB ChB Curriculum Committee Moodle page (University username and login required).
The accreditation process involves annual reports on the School's progress towards addressing any conditions imposed, and responding to other areas of AMC interest between the accreditation visits. These reports and responses are University confidential. Please contact us at Otago Medical School if you would like information in earlier reports.
