All intern and PGY2 positions are accredited by PMCV based on the AMC Accreditation framework and standards. As accredited positions, health services are mandated to ensure that all intern and PGY2 rotations meet the Accreditation standards. Many junior doctors are unaware of the minimum expected education and training standards, services and resources which their workplace is mandated to provide.
The Swing Tag Project aims to provide a quick and portable reference guide for all junior doctors, new and existing, to refer to at the beginning of every rotation. This guide acts as a gentle reminder to junior doctors to check and confirm their rotations meet the minimum expectations as mandated by AMC accreditation standards in areas including supervision and support, education and training, and wellbeing.
