Expressions of interest for inclusion in the list of approved clinical assessors for the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia

The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA or the Board) is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced individuals from across Australia to be included in the Board’s list of approved clinical assessors.

The Board may appoint approved clinical assessors to act as examiners for the CMBA objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) for overseas qualified Chinese medicine acupuncturists and Chinese herbal medicine practitioners who apply for registration in Australia.

  • Have extensive knowledge and experience of Chinese medicine acupuncture practice and/or Chinese herbal medicine practice within the Australian health care system 
  • Can address the Board’s other selection criteria as listed in the information guide

Applications will be assessed by a selection advisory panel and clinical assessors will be approved by the Board. Clinical assessors will be paid for acting as an examiner and for attending clinical assessor training.

If the Board identifies you are suitable, before being added to the Board’s list of approved clinical assessors you will be required to:

  • confirm you are available to act as an examiner for CMBA OSCEs in Sydney or Melbourne at least once a year, and
