Look up a health practitioner


Check if your health practitioner is qualified, registered and their current registration status

Meeting the registration requirements

To be eligible for general registration as a Chinese medicine practitioner, you need to meet the Board’s qualification requirements and registration standards.

Applications for registration from overseas qualified Chinese medicine practitioners are assessed against:

  • Board approved assessment criteria, and
  • the registration standards which are:
    • criminal history
    • English language skills
    • professional indemnity insurance arrangements, and
    • recency of practice.

Applicants who are assessed as meeting the Board’s qualification requirements and registration standards are eligible for general registration.

Who is AHPRA?

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) supports the 14 National Boards in their role of protecting the public and setting standards that all registered health practitioners must meet.

AHPRA and the National Boards work together to register health practitioners and, where required, investigate complaints or concerns regarding health practitioners.

AHPRA's operations are governed by the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law which came into effect on 1 July 2010. This law applies in each Australian state and territory, and is usually referred to on our sites as ‘the National Law’.

All health practitioners registered to practise are included on the national register of practitioners.
