History of the Forum

The National Prevocational Medical Education Forum began in 1995 and has been hosted on rotation annually by a state or territory postgraduate medical council or equivalent on behalf of the national body, the Confederation of Postgraduate Medical Education Councils. In 2018 the Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria (PMCV) is pleased to be hosting the Forum for the third time. This annual event brings together clinicians, supervisors, department of health personnel, colleges, medical administrators/workforce managers, educators and prevocational doctors who are able to share research, educational activities and discuss important current issues in prevocational medical education, training and accreditation.

The Forum is the venue at which the national Junior Doctor of the Year and the national Clinical Educator of the Year are announced.
