A big thank you to all that participated!
More than half Australia’s doctors in training did the 2022 Medical Training Survey (MTS) – that’s more than 23,000 voices sharing insights into medical training.
Result will be published in February 2023, accessible in static reports and through an online data-dashboard that enables comparisons across training sites and with past years’ results. Data from past years is already being used across the health sector to drive improvements in medical training.
The MTS is a longitudinal survey that tracks the quality of medical training. Stringent privacy controls make it safe and confidential for trainees to take part. It is run by the Medical Board of Australia.
A huge thanks to every doctor in training who made time to do the 2022 MTS, despite training commitments and work. The 56.6 per cent response rate has generated a robust national dataset that will continue to shape improvements to training. Results will again show how COVID has impacted on medical training and will give insights into the quality and access to training and the workplace culture doctors train in.
As ever, a huge team effort underpins this result. We are grateful to each doctor in training who participated in the survey, shared their story on social media to help boost participation rates and were members of our state/territory MTS networks who assisted in shaping the surveys communications strategy. A big thank you to the organisations across the health sector who backed and promoted the 2022 MTS, and to members of the MTS Steering Committee and Consultative whose expertise and enthusiasm were invaluable.
We are always keen to do better, so if you did the 2022 MTS and have any suggestions to improve the MTS, get in touch at MTS@ahpra.gov.au.
