Pre-employment structured clinical interview (PESCI)
Usually all IMGs applying for registration with AMC are required to undergo a pre-employment structured clinical interview (PESCI). A PESCI is an objective assessment of your knowledge, skills, clinical experience and attributes to determine whether you are suitable to practise in a specific position. The PESCI consists of a structured clinical interview using scenarios.
IMGs in the specialist pathway do not require a PESCI as they are assessed by the relevant specialist medical college.
You may be required to have a PESCI if you are applying to work in a non-specialist hospital position that is high risk and/or not well supported. The Board will advise you if a PESCI is required.
If you have already arranged your PESCI, we are able to help you prepare faster and perform with confident.
