The 2023 Medical Training Survey is now open
29 Aug 2023
The Medical Board of Australia’s Medical Training Survey (MTS) is now live and open until early October. All doctors-in-training in Australia, including RACP trainees, are eligible and encouraged to participate. This year’s survey will build on results from past years and help our College monitor trends in training experiences over time. Results from last year’s MTS revealed overall satisfaction with workplace training experiences, but raised concerns around intensifying workloads, troubling workplace culture, and inadequate access to flexible working arrangements.
If you are an RACP trainee, do not miss this important feedback opportunity. Your experiences will be used to enhance education and training experiences for others.
The RACP will use the 2023 survey findings to:
- help strengthen our training programs and activities
- identify and address wellbeing issues
- provide training settings with data to encourage and focus improvement
- inform Training Setting accreditation activities.
About the Medical Training Survey
The MTS is a national survey of all doctors-in-training in Australia. The survey is independently administered by research company EY Sweeney, ensuring only de-identified survey data will be provided to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) and the Medical Board of Australia. Results will be made publicly available via online summary reports and an interactive reporting dashboard early next year.
How can trainees access the survey
A survey link is provided to trainees once they renew their medical registration with Ahpra. Further details can be found by visiting the Medical Training Survey website. If you have questions regarding the MTS, please email MTS@ahpra.gov.au.
