Five years data from the Medical Training Survey (MTS) are generating rich insights, with important headline results from the 2023 survey of Australia’s doctors in training.
More than half (54.5 per cent) of Australia’s doctors in training did the 2023 MTS, an annual profession-wide longitudinal survey that tracks the quality of medical training.
Results this year are broadly consistent with previous years, with some small but statistically significant variations.
‘There is a lot going well in medical training and clear signs for optimism’, Dr Anne Tonkin AO, Chair of the Medical Board of Australia, which leads the MTS.
The 2023 MTS results show that the quality of supervision, orientation, education and training and patient safety training has improved.

2023 MTS results will be out this year!
You’ll soon be able to access the results of the 2023 Medical Training Survey!
Thanks to some system changes, we’ve slashed the time between the close of the survey and publication of the results, enabling the results to be accessible in December 2023.
A big shout out too to all the doctors in training who did the 2023 MTS. Again, more than half Australia’s doctors in training – 23,000+ super busy people – made time and shared their insights about medical training.
The 54 per cent response rate has strengthened the robust national dataset already being used to shape improvements to training.
With minor 2023 question changes, we’re keen to know what trainees have said about flexible training, the culture of medicine and the overall quality of medical training.

The latest annual, national survey of Australia’s doctors in training reveals small but worrying signs of pressure on medical training.
Results of the 2022 Medical Training Survey (MTS) are broadly consistent with previous years, with some small but statistically significant variations in year-on-year results, including an increase in trainee workload, a dip in the quality of teaching, a drop in the number of trainees who would recommend their current training position or organisation and an increase in the number of trainees considering a future outside of medicine.
The MTS is a longitudinal survey, run by the Medical Board of Australia, that tracks feedback about the quality of medical training run in Australia. Stringent privacy controls make it safe and confidential for trainees to take part.
Each year, more than half Australia’s doctors in training share their insights in the MTS, with results signalling what’s going well in training and issues to...Read full article
