The Postgraduate Medical Education Council of Tasmania (PMCT) is the organisation responsible for accreditation prevocational medical education in Tasmania. Prevocational doctors are those who have not yet commenced vocational training with a college (usually doctors in their first two to three years post qualification). We also have a role in the education and support of International Medical Graduates working in Tasmanian public hospitals.
PMCT is responsible for the education of doctors in their early postgraduate years (PGY1 to PGY3) and the accreditation of intern training programs in health services and training posts for junior doctors in Tasmania.
PMCT is committed to patient safety and junior doctor wellbeing and to this end employs staff at each of Tasmania's public hospitals to ensure the appropriate education, supervision and support for prevocational doctors in the hospital system.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, which is independent of the Tasmanian Department of Health (DoH), but which receives the majority of its funding from this Department.
PMCT is an active participant in the Confederation of Postgraduate Medical Councils in Australia (CPMEC) thus facilitating close collaboration between the States and Territories in early postgraduate medical education.
