Each year the Confederation of Postgraduate Medical Education Councils (CPMEC) recognises both junior doctors and clinical educators across Australia and New Zealand who have made valuable contributions to prevocational medical education and training through two Awards:
Nominees are selected by peers or supervisors, and PMCWA selects the Western Australian (WA) winners based upon the nomination details provided. All state nominees are forwarded by PMCWA to CPMEC and the overall national winner of each category is announced at the annual National Prevocational Medical Education Forum in November.
Nominations are now closed for 2022.

MEO Innovation Award
PMCWA has developed an award to celebrate the innovation and passion of the WA Medical Education Officers, Medical Education Support Officers or equivalent. We appreciate the amazing support and effort they provide to our prevocational medical trainees, and we would like to recognise this important role. Additonal information can be found here.
We are very pleased to announce that the winner of this award for 2022 is Leah Proctor.
Leah has been instrumental in the creation and implementation of two major innovative projects at Fiona Stanley Fremantle Hospital Group - Simulation To Enhance Patient Safety (STEPS) Consultation Service and Team First Aid. We congratulate Leah on this achievement, and thank her for her ongoing contribution to prevocational medical education and training in WA.
