Prevocational Training

Prevocational Training is the base of medical education in which doctors develop competencies after completion of their basic medical qualification.

The first two postgraduate years after medical graduation (PGY1 and PGY2) provide a grounding (or basis) for future vocational training. These first two or three years are spent primarily in public hospitals and /or community settings. Postgraduate Medical Education Councils have been established in all states to oversee training and educational opportunities for junior medical staff in these early postgraduate years.

State and Territory Postgraduate Councils generally have a responsibility of intern (and PGY2 in some states) accreditation of hospital training posts. Further information on each states accreditation process can be viewed on their respective websites.
