The assessment of your suitability to fill an AoN position does not involve an assessment of your comparability to an Australian or Aotearoa​ New Zealand trained specialist in emergency medicine to attain specialist registration with the Medical Board of Australia. You may apply to the College for Concurrent Assessment which includes both the Specialist and AoN assessment.
