Prevocational Training - Medical Training Review Panel


The Health Insurance Amendment Act (No 2) 1996 (the Act) commenced on 17 December 1996. It requires medical practitioners to complete a recognised postgraduate medical training program to be eligible to provide services that attract Medicare benefits.

Since the commencement of the Act, the Commonwealth Minister for Health and Family Services established the Medical Training Review Panel (MTRP) to look at demand for and supply of medical training opportunities and to monitor particular measures of the Act. MTRP's role has now been assumed by the Federal Government's National Medical Training Advisory Network.
