Abstract

In 2014, the Council of Australian Governments commissioned the independent Review of Medical Intern Training, which was led by Professor Andrew Wilson and Dr Anne-Marie Feyer. The purpose of the review was “to examine the current medical internship model and consider potential reforms to support medical graduate transition into practice and further training”.1 The review involved regular interaction with external stakeholders, including the invitation of submissions in response to an initial discussion paper and consultation regarding a later options paper.2 The review’s final report (the Report), released in October 2015, has been considered by the Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council, which has made recommendations for a wide-ranging working group overseen by the Health Workforce Principal Committee to investigate the feasibility, prioritisation and sequencing of the Report’s recommendations.
