The MSS office will be closed from midday Thursday 22 December 2022 to 9 January 2023. New Zealand graduates wishing to be registered must submit their registration application by 15 December 2022. Newly registered practitioners must submit their APC application before 19 December 2022 to receive their APC before the Christmas break.

Overseas-Trained How to Register

Holders of an overseas medical laboratory science or anaesthetic technology qualification can apply for registration with the Medical Sciences Council.

Your qualifications and experience will be assessed to determine if they are equivalent or satisfactory compared to an approved New Zealand qualification for that scope of practice.
