Online applications are available to students completing an Australian approved program of study, except for students applying for registration as a dental practitioner in multiple divisions of the profession. These applicants, as well as overseas graduates or those who have been previously registered as a health practitioner, must use the hard copy General registration application forms available on their profession’s National Board website. Individuals who graduated or completed their course over two years ago must apply using a hard copy form.
Please note that you will need a Visa or Mastercard credit or debit card to apply online. Further information about online graduate applications is available in the answers to frequently asked questions.
What happens after I apply online?
You will receive a Next steps checklist email from AHPRA. You must send us your supporting documents by post within 30 days to complete your application for registration.
Your application for registration will be assessed while we wait for your education provider to advise us that you are eligible to graduate. AHPRA will contact you if more information is needed and/or to confirm your registration.
New graduates registered with their profession’s National Board are eligible to start work as soon as their name is published on the national register.
