Accredited posts

Accredited terms in South Australia

The SA MET Health Advisory Council accredits units, general practices, community terms and Local Health Networks (LHNs) on a four year cycle.

Accreditation for the four year maximum will be granted, with or without provisos, when a LHN is compliant with most or all SA MET Accreditation Standards. Three year, two year, twelve month, six month or provisional accreditation may be granted when issues have been noted requiring clarification or attention.

A LHN may choose not to fill all accredited posts and therefore the number of posts accredited is not necessarily the number of posts funded or available for employment purposes. Additionally there may be PGY2+ Trainee Medical Officers (TMOs) in posts that are not included in the table but are in the process of being accredited.

The PGY2+ numbers represent the upper limit of prevocational trainee posts in each specialty. These posts can be filled by vocational trainees if they are also accredited by the relevant specialty medical college.

The information provided in these tables will be updated as accreditation visits occur, but stakeholders are encouraged to contact SA MET to ensure this is the most recent data.

Core intern terms

Intern training – Guidelines for Terms from the Australian Medical Council (AMC) outlines the requirements of the core terms. In order to complete their internship and achieve general registration with the Medical Board of Australia, interns are required to undertake mandatory or core terms in emergency medical care, medicine and surgery.
