Medical Training Survey results will provide a snapshot of medical training in Australia, through the eyes of doctors in training. Survey data will be used by employers, colleges, educators and others to strengthen medical training.
By getting anonymous feedback from doctors in training, the survey will deliver robust national data that will help identify strengths in medical training, as well as potential issues so these can be addressed.
Australia’s first-ever national medical training survey (MTS) has revealed that most trainees rate their training very highly, but many are still unacceptably experiencing excessive hours, heavy workload, bullying, harassment, or discrimination.
The survey was conducted by the Medical Board of Australia (MBA).
AMA President, Dr Tony Bartone, said today that the AMA supported the survey and welcomes the results, but the whole medical profession and training stakeholders must work together to ensure that they address the negatives to make the medical training journey a safer and more rewarding experience for the future medical workforce.
“Trainees deserve and should expect such a workplace – nothing less,” Dr Bartone said.
“The MTS has, overall, reinforced the quality and reputation of Australia’s world class system of medical education.
“The AMA has lobbied for the MTS for many years to measure the performance of our system of medical training and identify key areas for improvement, and this advocacy has...Read full article
Nearly 10,000 doctors in training took part in the first Medical Training Survey (MTS), creating the first national, comprehensive picture of medical training in Australia.
Medical Board of Australia Chair, Dr Anne Tonkin, said the MTS results provide an evidence base that educators, employers and stakeholders across the health sector can use to improve the culture of medicine and further strengthen medical training.
‘The 2019 survey results tell the start of an important and emerging national story about the culture and quality of medical training, from trainees’ perspectives. We hope the results trigger ideas and discussion about what we can all do to keep improving it,’ Dr Tonkin said.
Trainee responses are presented in a series of static reports and the data are also accessible through an online reporting tool, accessible from the MTS website at www.medicaltrainingsurvey.gov.au.

Close to 10,000 doctors in training took part in the first Medical Training Survey, which has now closed.
Thanks to every doctor in training who participated – 27 per cent of all doctors in training took the time to share their feedback, which will build the first national, comprehensive picture of medical training in Australia.
We’ll be analysing the data in the months ahead and publishing the survey results in early 2020. As promised, we will prioritise confidentiality and will only publish results with 10 or more responses.
Based on participation rates, we expect to be able to report by state and territory, specialist medical college and type of doctor in training – interns, prevocational and unaccredited trainees, specialist trainees and international medical graduates. Individual hospital level reporting will be possible where there were more than 10 responses for that hospital. We expect this level of detail to build year on year.
The results...Read full article
