MELBOURNE, 22 November 2021: If you are a dental graduate from India and want to work as a dentist in Australia your dream can become a reality. First, you have to clear the Australian Dental Council’s (ADC) two-day theoretical examination (qualifying test) from Bangalore or Mumbai. Those who pass this have to then pass the two-day practical examination and after that are registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) to be able to practise dentistry in Australia.
The Institute of Health & Management (IHM) in Melbourne has established a state-of-the-art training facility to provide practical training to all dentists who have passed the qualifying test and are preparing to sit for the Australian Dental Association’s two-day practical examination.At this facility, all students will have the opportunity to enrol in a four-week practical exam preparation course.
Mayor Elizabeth Nealy of Banyule Council officially launched the brand new facility, which was also attended by IHMCEO Bijo Kunnumpurathu and his team.This facility is for those who have passed the Australian Dental Council’s theory examination and are awaiting their two-day practical examination.
The IHM is now providing an online five-month ADC theory examination preparation course for qualified dentists worldwide and this course is a perfect match for overseas dentists to pass ADC theory examination.
In addition, IHM has educated hundreds of nurses and assisted them in establishing careers as professional nurses in Australia throughout the years. The IHM now has two nursing training centres in Kochi and Kottayam, where overseas trained nurses are getting trained for their registration examination.
Olympia ward councillor Petar Dimarelos was among those present for the new Centre’s inauguration, as were Dr Kogi Naidu, Dr Geons Jose, Simon Schweigert and SajiKunnumpurathu.
