On 27 May 2014, the SA MET Health Advisory Council endorsed the revised SA MET Accreditation Standards to take effect on 1 January 2015. Subsequently, the SA MET Accreditation Standards were endorsed by the Minister for Health on 23 July 2014 and the Australian Medical Council (AMC) on 2 September 2014.

The revised SA MET Accreditation Standards have been developed from the 2010 SA IMET Accreditation Standards and have been mapped to the AMC’s National Standards for Intern Training.

Accreditation Standards
The revised Standards provide a framework for the education and training of prevocational Trainee Medical Officers (TMOs) in South Australia. By meeting these standards, Local Health Networks (LHNs) demonstrate they provide safe and effective education programs for their TMOs. The SA MET Health Advisory Council will use evidence to test the extent to which health services meet these standards through document analysis, TMO surveys and visits to the LHNs.
