Medical Education Advisors (MEAs) are responsible for facilitating the continuing education of prevocational doctors (specifically PGY1, PGY2 and those PGY3s who are not in vocational studies). MEAs work with the Directors of Clinical Training (DCTs) and Senior Staff responsible for the supervision and education of prevocational doctors to maximise and promote teaching and learning for this group.
- The role of the MEA is multifaceted and includes:
- Assessing, evaluating and improving teaching and learning strategies for the junior doctor in training program;
- Ensuring that junior doctor educational activities are in accordance with the National accreditation standards and the Junior Doctor Curriculum Framework (AJDCF);
- Facilitating the provision of effective and timely feedback to junior doctors in relation to their performance consistent with the ACF Performance Appraisal framework; and
- Promoting and supporting junior doctor welfare.
