PMCV Accreditation Guide 2018 v1 Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria Inc. 13 2.5 Procedures following accreditation decisions All applications for accreditation are reviewed by the PMCV Accreditation Committee. Following a survey visit, a survey report including duration of accreditation recommendations, any conditions associated with the prevocational medical training program or posts and recommendations for improvement is forwarded to the facility and a response is sought from the facility in relation to the recommendations in the report within a specified timeframe. After the PMCV Accreditation Committee has made its decision in regards to duration of accreditation, it seeks endorsement of its recommendations from the PMCV Board and decisions are forwarded to the Victorian Branch of the MBA (for intern programs and posts). For accreditation of new programs or posts, or changes, PMCV will advise of the accreditation outcomes by letter. During the accreditation period awarded to the facility, PMCV will monitor the prevocational medical training programs and posts through regular progress reports. Further, if issues are raised regarding individual posts, the PMCV Accreditation Committee may implement a monitoring process whereby regular updates are provided by the facility until such time as the PMCV Accreditation Committee is satisfied that the post meets intern training requirements Parent health services will be advised of accreditation outcomes following survey visits to relevant rotation sites. 2.6 Training post accreditation Interns can only work in terms accredited by PMCV and PGY2s should only work in terms approved by PMCV. Terms are accredited according to the following (Standard 8.2.2): • Complexity and volume of the unit’s workload • The intern/PGY2’s workload • The experience interns/PGY2s can expect to gain • How the intern/PGY2 will be supervised, and by whom Posts (and terms) for interns are specifically accredited by unit and number of posts. PMCV has developed guidelines intended to ensure that facilities and supervisors are aware of the clinical supervision and clinical learning requirements for junior doctors to promote the provision of safe patient care and junior doctor wellbeing. The guidelines are available on the PMCV website. • PMCV Clinical Supervision of Junior Doctors Guidelines • PMCV Clinical Learning for Junior Doctors Guidelines These guidelines form the basis of the application process for new intern and PGY2 posts (or terms) and are expected to be used by facilities to continually monitor their existing accredited posts. It is crucial that facilities regularly review these guidelines to ensure ongoing compliance at both the training program (governance) and individual post level (particularly for core intern terms). Assessment of the clinical supervision and clinical learning provided to junior doctors are also key components of prevocational medical training accreditation. Facilities wishing to establish stand-alone intern training programs have usually already been accredited for intern training as a rotation site. The usual model is for the facility to already be
