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. Two year, twelve month, six month or provisional accreditation may be granted when issues have been noted requiring clarification or attention.
A list of accredited terms in South Australia’s LHNs can be viewed here:
Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN)
Country Health South Australia Local Health Network (CHSALHN)
Northern Adelaide Local Health Network (NALHN)
Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN)
Women’s and Children’s Health Network (WCHN)
The Adelaide Prevocational Psychiatry Program (TAPPP)
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
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. The requirements of these core terms are outlined in the Australian Medical Council (AMC) – intern training – guidelines for terms.
