Either you take the AMC2 or you find a hospital that will give an "internship" for a year.
The only alternative is 'limited' supervision, where you do intern rotations at a hospital. It may be paid or unpaid. These are not easy to get either.
Under limited, you have to do emergency, IM, surgery, all as an intern. Unless you try to do the AMC II, in which case you may be able to skip this. With peds job, you're not like to get something 100% peds, you may be able to find a hospital that offers 1-2 peds rotations as a rotating resident. Unlike say the US, peds is very competitive and highly sought after by Australian grads.
From the IMGs I've known (purely anecdotal) from non-English speaking backgrounds. on average, it takes 1-2 years to just get through AMC II (as spots are limited to rego for) or find a hospital to take them. So not working as a doctor for up to 2 years. If you're lucky. But I've also known those who spend 4-5 years and are still not in paid positions.
I can't recommend hospitals for you, that's work you have to do on your own. Most hospitals generally have 1-2 IMG observers and IMGs under limited supervision anyway. You have to sell yourself to them. Of the few IMGs of non English speaking backgrounds I've known, 50% survive limited supervision or are able to keep up. The rest repeat or switch careers. Obviously very anecdotal observation here. I've worked with or for very incredible IMGs, they have or are my referees in my own short career. But I've also known or worked with IMGs who were even out done by students on the teams - in that we would trust the students more that IMGs with medical degrees with our patients. It's competitive now there's usually no second chances.
There's no easy way. And there's always a huge demand for AMC2 and limited supervision spots by IMGs.
There's actually a massive demand in general by IMGs from India, the Middle East and China. All after a piece of the pie seen as a better life and better pay in some Western country - I get it. There are also refugees looking for a better anything. But this in a country where priority goes to their own Australian graduates (large in number already) and a country that has an agreement with UK & Ireland (they don't need the AMCs and are hired next). We have a very large number of Irish and UK grads coming over because of unhappiness with NHS hours. So you have to be very desperate and have nothing to lose to make it through hoops and competition, if you want or need to make that jump from a non-Western country to a Western one.
