I tried to get partner points for my wife who is a doctor from India. What I found out was that for doctors, skill assessment means passing AMC level 1 and 2 exams and a full registration in Australia as a GP, unlike for example a software engineer like me where just 2 years of experience+ qualifications in Computer Science would suffice for ACS. That's a pretty long pathway, as far as I understand, and I gave up any hope of getting partner points- Luckily I was invited without those points. She is preparing for her level 1 MCQ exam and level 2 clinical exam, so she can practice here. (The exams are also too costly)
I searched many online resources and threads here (and raising a thread myself but the response was pretty low- I guess there are not many doctors here or have similar experience).
My advice for you would be to see if you can scrape up points from another way instead of having to go the long-duration pathway. Experts here may guide.
