SA MET Papers

Below is a list of papers produced by the South Australian Medical Education and Training (SA MET) Unit.

19th National Prevocational Medical Education Forum 2014 – ANZMET

The Forum was hosted by the Health Education and Training Institute (HETI) in the Hunter Valley, NSW, from Sunday 9 November to Wednesday 12 November 2014.

Across the three day conference there were presentations from junior doctors, national partners and from those who have an interest in the prevocational medical education space. There was a well-balanced mix of established educators, scholars, researchers, prevocational doctors and some respected leaders from industries outside of medicine. The opening keynote address from Dr Cliff Reid, “Making it happen” invited robust, respectful and engaged exchange among the participants and set the tone for the rest of the proceedings. The relatively intimate conference allowed for a seminar style discussion at each presentation.

Overall, in comparison with other states and territories, South Australia and the South Australian Medical Education and Training (SA MET) unit is keeping abreast of common issues relating to junior doctor needs. In some areas such as online assessment, the SA MET unit is a leader. Key areas which could receive some focus in 2015 include:

  • Cultural Awareness and Safety Training.
  • Support of junior doctors.
  • Partnering with junior doctors in creation of training, which addresses their needs.
  • Creation of further online education packages in partnership with the Local Health Networks (LHNs).
