  • Accreditation Survey Tool

The Accreditation Survey Tool is based on:

PMAF was developed in 2009 by the Confederation of Prevocational Medical Education Councils (CPMEC) to increase consistency, transparency and efficiency in prevocational medical accreditation processes in all Australian States and Territories, and to align prevocational accreditation with the best local and national accreditation processes.

The Accreditation Survey Tool is reviewed annually by the Accreditation Subcommittee to ensure that it complies with current National Registration Standards.

The tool comprises two parts:

Part 1: Health service information and overview

This section of the tool is completed by the health service prior to the accreditation visit and documents the staffing, facilities and structures in place to support the intern training program.

Part 2: Assessment against standards

This section is completed by both the health service (self-assessment prior to the visit) and the survey team (assessment during the visit). It is used to provide a framework for assessing compliance with the accreditation standards.
