MDANZ surveyed medical schools in Australia and New Zealand in 2019, to gain a better understanding of the degree to which they include research education and skills training in the curriculum. 21 of the schools responded and the results shine a light on what is happening in medical program research.
Medical Deans produces a range of reports based on its projects and on matters of significance to medical education and medical students.
Student Statistics reports – The annual Student Statistics reports provide snapshot and trend information about commencement, enrolment and graduate medical student data across Australia and New Zealand.
MSOD National Data reports – The annual MSOD National Data reports details the data that Medical Deans gathers as a result of the annual Medical Students Workforce Survey (MSWS).The survey captures the details (demographics, career intentions, medical school experiences and practise preferences) of graduating medical students from all current medical schools across Australia.
This report from a forum held on Thursday 31st August convened jointly between the Council of Presidents of Medical Colleges and the Medical Deans of Australia and New Zealand with representation from the Australian Department of Health. The purpose of the forum was to build on work that has already been done, identify champions for change and establish a joint working group that can take forward the development of training programs and workforce models that address regional and rural workforce shortages.
A National Intern Work Readiness Forum was convened to further consider the Review of Medical Intern Training Report’s recommendation relating to intern work readiness in September 2016. The Workshop was jointly sponsored by the Medical Deans Australia and New Zealand and the Health Workforce Principal Committee (HWPC).
This report examined the assessment of clinical competencies to develop the National Assessment Blueprint for Clinical Competencies for the medical graduate, and provides a comprehensive account of the project‘s methodology, results and final versions of the clinical assessment blueprints.
The aim of this project was to develop, pilot and evaluate a harmonised assessment tool, at a site where multiple medical schools share the same clinical training environment and clinician assessors. This Final Report provides a comprehensive account of the project’s achievements.
MedEd12 was the fourth in a biennial series of national meetings aimed at advancing medical education and training in two countries (Australia and New Zealand). The final report will provide a comprehensive basis for the future consideration of the recommendations.
The aim of this project was to identify diagnostic and procedural skills for medical graduates, including mapping to the skills and procedures components of the Australian Curriculum Framework for Junior Doctors and; to refine components of the Competencies Framework to improve its functional use. The Final Report provides a comprehensive account of the project‘s achievements.
The report provides a summary of discussion and ideas raised at the national forum (held in October 2011) from which a series of recommendations were drawn to form opportunities for action to increase the pool of Indigenous medical academic leaders by creating pathways, opportunities and providing support.
The specific objectives of the Review were to document the implementation of the Curriculum Framework and assess the effectiveness of its implementation, to identify examples of best practice in the implementation of the Curriculum Framework, to identify issues impacting on effective implementation of the Curriculum Framework, to document the development of pathways into medicine and retention strategies for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The Final Report provides a comprehensive account of this Review‘s recommendations, methodology and findings.
This report is about the diagnosis and prognosis for the clinical academic workforce in Australia and New Zealand. Given its status as a Discussion Paper, each section of this report includes a series of questions to stimulate debate on the issues and potential ways forward.
The objectives of the project were to: a) identify the competencies associated with each of the attributes in knowledge, skills and attitudes/behaviours specified by the AMC for competent medical graduates that depend on clinical placements. b) Use the AMC Accreditation Standards and Processes for medical graduates (including International Medical Graduates), the Australian Curriculum Framework for Junior Doctors (ACFJD) as the basis of the development of a document that maps competencies to AMC prescribed attributes which enables graduates to practice at the beginning of the PGY1 Year. This report provides a comprehensive account of the manner in which the project has undertaken, its achievements and outlines the potential future use of the Framework.
