You've Just Signed Up... Learn the Basics

Congratulations on taking your first step to becoming a PMCWA surveyor. As a trainee surveyor your role is to simply understand the process and experience a few surveys to prepare you to progress towards becoming a support surveyor.

After signing up, your name will be listed on our surveyor database. You will be contacted by PMCWA when a suitable site is due for accreditation, which is one where you do not have a conflict of interest. A conflict may include a site where you currently work, or have recently worked or been involved in.

While you await confirmation from PMCWA for the details of your first survey it’s a good idea to use this time to become familiar with the following:

The aim of the accreditation program is to establish and monitor standards for all prevocational doctor positions with the emphasis on the first two postgraduate years. The standards constitute a benchmark for the provision and attainment of a high standard of general clinical training.

Accreditation of prevocational doctor positions assists in ensuring that the ideal environment exists for the development of the prevocational doctor.

Accreditation surveys are formal evaluations to assess the health site against standards and guidelines. PMCWA has been given the authority by the Australian Medical Council to accredit these positions in WA.
