This 2-day program  integrates all non-hospital/practice specific orientation content as defined in the AMC Orientation Guidelines (2007) and assists with the initial 3 month orientation reporting requirement to AHPRA / Medical Board of Australia (MBA).


Program Summary (2009 - 2017)

The introduction of a coordinated and centrally delivered IMG orientation program has demonstrated both a practical and integrated approach to implementation of the AMC / AHPRA guidelines and a decrease in duplication of effort by supervisors and employers in relation to IMG orientation since the program inception in 2009. The uptake of the program state-wide (region based) from its inception (August 2009 - June 2017) has included 909 participants, with 65% of participants attending from metropolitan health services/practices and 35% of participants attending from regional/rural health services/practices. Participants have also attended the program from interstate (Queensland, NSW, South Australia and Western Australia).
