The Australian Medical Council (AMC) has developed a national standards framework for intern training to support the Medical Board of Australia's registration standard for Granting general registration to Australian and New Zealand medical graduates after completion of the intern year.
As part of the framework, the AMC has developed a suite of intern training documents which the Board has approved. The following documents detail what is expected of interns and intern training providers. There are also resources and tools for use by interns and providers of intern training.
The Australian Medical Council and Medical Board of Australia undertook surveys of interns in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The surveys were designed to assess how well medical schools prepare graduates for their internship. An evaluation of the surveys’ effectiveness as a quality improvement tool has been undertaken.
