International Medical Graduates

International Medical Graduates (IMGs) who want to practice psychology in New Zealand have several specialist pathways to follow. These pathways are designed to ensure that IMGs have the necessary qualifications, knowledge, and skills to provide quality psychological services in New Zealand. Here are the various pathways available:

  1. Accredited Psychology Qualification: IMGs who have completed an accredited psychology qualification in their home country may be eligible for registration with the New Zealand Psychology Board. However, they must have completed the qualification in the last 10 years and must provide evidence of equivalent accreditation in New Zealand.

  2. Bridging Programs: IMGs who do not have an accredited psychology qualification may be eligible for a bridging program. These programs are designed to help IMGs acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to practice psychology in New Zealand. Bridging programs vary in length and content and may include coursework, supervised practice, and examinations.

  3. Area of Need (AoN) Program: IMGs who wish to work in an area with a shortage of psychologists may be eligible for the Area of Need program. This program allows IMGs to work in designated areas for up to 6 years, provided they meet the eligibility requirements.

  4. Specialist Pathway Program: The Specialist Pathway Program is designed for IMGs who have completed specialist training in psychology in their home country. This program allows them to undertake an assessment process to determine their level of knowledge and skills and to identify any gaps in their training. Upon completion of the program, IMGs may be eligible for registration with the New Zealand Psychology Board.

  5. Reciprocal Agreements: New Zealand has reciprocal agreements with several countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. IMGs from these countries may be eligible for registration with the New Zealand Psychology Board, provided they meet the eligibility requirements.

In summary, IMGs who want to practice psychology in New Zealand have several specialist pathways to follow.
