Welcome to PMCV
Since its formation in 1999, the Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria has been actively seeking ways to improve the educational and training opportunities available to support the welfare and career development of doctors who have recently graduated or commenced work in the Victorian health system. Through our work we aspire to promote safe, high quality and accessible healthcare and a sustainable, highly motivated and effective medical workforce.
Like similar organisations we face a period of rapid change between 2010 and 2012 with challenges relating to the increase in number of prevocational trainees as a result of the expansion of the Victorian medical schools, a new national accreditation and registration scheme (from 1 July 2010), new pathways for the assessment and supervision of International Medical Graduates (IMGs) and implementation of national initiatives, such as the Australian Curriculum Framework for Junior Doctors. We look forward to meeting these challenges and working with our stakeholders on these important issues.
