Where the MTS started

The idea for the Medical Training Survey came from doctors in training, educators and employers, who all wanted accurate data about the state of medical training in Australia.

The Medical Training Survey is a joint project of doctors in training, specialist colleges, employers, health departments, educators, the AMA, Doctors’ Health Services, Postgraduate Medical Councils, Australian Indigenous Doctors’ Association, the AMC, the Medical Council of NSW, the Medical Board of Australia and AHPRA.

The Medical Board of Australia and AHPRA are funding and organising the survey, which is being run independently by research agency, EY Sweeney.

The Medical Board of Australia set up two groups to develop the Medical Training Survey:

Steering Committee to manage the hands on work to develop and deliver the survey, and

An Advisory Group to make sure the survey was strengthened by input from doctors in training and other experts including specialist colleges, employers and jurisdictions, the Australian Medical Council and the AMA.
