Enhancing the medical education and training environment for medical prevocational trainees

PMCV delivers education, training, and Professional Development for leaders and practices wishing to improve their supervision and training skills.

When teaching and providing prevocational Medical Education and training to JMOs, Supervisors and facilities need to ensure that JMOs are supported and well-supervised in order to provide the best patient outcomes.

Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, and JMOs are unable to receive the Medical Education and training that they’re entitled to. This is a stressful experience that can impact their career progression.

After identifying these challenges, we knew that there was a need for further training of senior staff. We saw an opportunity to link accreditation supervision training and requirements, and created clinical leadership and practice programs for supervisors and other senior medical staff.

Our Education & Training programs focus on intelligent supervision, and have become well-regarded, national programs that guarantee that supervisors are providing an optimal prevocational training environment for JMOs.

We have involved external stakeholders, such as the MEO and Supervisor network, JMO Victoria (formerly known as JMO Forum Victoria) and PMCV’s Education Committee, to ensure representation from all medical prevocational education stakeholders and craft groups.

All our programs and initiatives are achieved with consideration to the PMCV values: with agility, equity and through collaboration.
