AMC National Framework for Prevocational (PGY1 & PGY2) Medical Training

The Australian Medical Council (AMC) has conducted a comprehensive review of all the elements of the National Framework for Prevocational Medical Training. The new framework has marked a major step towards greater national consistency in intern training. The development was made possible by the introduction of the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, which replaced state-based regulation of medical practitioners with national registration by the Medical Board of Australia (MBA).

The Components of the framework have been comprised into three parts;

  1. Training and assessment - Training and assessment requirements for prevocational (PGY1 and PGY2) training programs

  2. Training environment - National standards and requirements for prevocational (PGY1 and PGY2) training programs and terms

  3. Quality Assurance - AMC domains and procedures for assessing and accrediting prevocational (PGY1 and PGY2 training accreditation authorities

Currently available resources to support the implementation
