The PMCT accreditation process has been designed to obtain information about health service performance of the intern training program against explicit standards and criteria, to achieve the following objectives:
- Interns achieve a high standard of general clinical education and training; and
- The best possible environment exists for the organisation, supervision, education and training of interns.
Accreditation is awarded to a health service for:
- The overall health service intern training program; and
- Individual intern terms
The objective of the accreditation process is to ensure that the training health service complies with the following seven standards:
- Health service culture and support for interns
- Education and training program
- Feedback and assessment
- Program evaluation
- Facilities and amenities
The standards have been developed with reference to the following documents:
Prevocational Medical Accreditation Framework for the Education and Training of Prevocational Doctors (CPMEC, 2009); National Intern Training Accreditation Framework (AMC 2014); and Registration Standard: Granting registration as a medical practitioner to Australian and New Zealand graduates on completion of intern training (MBA, 2012).
