The Starting Point - the New Doctor
Prevocational training is a journey from qualifying as a doctor to embarking on a defined career path in medicine. The starting point is the "day one undifferentiated intern" - Postgraduate year 1 (PGY1). All universities recognise this portrait, which is the end-product of the undergraduate medical course. The general philosophy is that the undifferentiated intern has the background knowledge, skills and attitudes to function and professionally develop as a doctor.
The WA Postgraduate Medical Council would like to acknowledge the assistance and input of the many key stakeholders involved in postgraduate medical education in the WA and Australia for the information contained in this website.
