Medical Workforce Reform Advisory Committee - Fact sheets

One of the functions of the Medical Workforce Reform Advisory Committee (MWRAC) is to ensure that training requirements are informed by relevant and up-to-date information about future service needs.

Page last updated: 16 May 2019

The Department produces medical fact sheets with a focus on the pre-vocational years in medicine and to use this information to better inform career planning for junior doctors. These Fact Sheets present information specific to each profession, such as information relating to principal area of practice, work setting and work sector.

Note: Prevocational Doctor Factsheets published before March 2019 reference the National Medical Training Advisory Network. All subsequent papers will refer to MWRAC in line with the change to the committee’s name.

Information gathered on the existing prevocational doctor workforce in Australia will be used to develop a series of fact sheets on each of the medical specialties.
