The results for previous Medical Training Surveys (MTS) are available in the Results section of the website. The results can be accessed in a variety of formats:
All survey results are published in a de-identified and aggregate format. Consistent with our commitment, we have prioritised confidentiality so results are only published when there were 10 or more responses.
Survey results are displayed as both charts and tables.
There are two ways to access the results. There are national and static reports accessible from the Reports and results page, or you can use the interactive data dashboard to Create your own report. You can use the data dashboard to tailor your own report using pre-defined filters and/or the comparison tool.
Find out how you can create your own tailored report using the Medical Training Survey (MTS) datasets including how to; compare datasets across years, specialist medical colleges and states/territories, switch on the national average, change how the data is displayed (graph or table format), output your tailored report as a PDF or powerpoint file and see the statistical significance. Click play on the instructional video below and discover the many possibilities of the MTS interactive data dashboard.
You can create your own report using the ‘advanced filters’ and/or comparison tool in the Create your own report section of this website.
Use the ‘advanced filters’ and/or comparison tool in the data dashboard to select the fields you want, hit ‘apply’ and the specific results you’ve requested will be displayed (providing confidentiality thresholds have been met). You can download the results or have a PDF report emailed to you by submitting your email when you are ready to generate your report. It will take no longer than 1 business day to receive your report.
The 2023 MTS is now closed.
2023 MTS results will be out this year!
You’ll soon be able to access the results of the 2023 Medical Training Survey (MTS)!
Thanks to some system changes, we’ve slashed the time between closing the survey and publishing the results. The full results will be published in a static report in December 2023, and our data dashboard – loaded with the 2023 results – will be online and accessible to everyone from late January 2024.
A big shout out too to all the doctors in training who did the 2023 MTS. Again this year, more than half Australia’s doctors in training – over 23,000 super busy people – made time and shared their insights about medical training.
The 54 per cent response rate has strengthened the robust national dataset already being used to shape improvements to training.
With minor 2023 question changes, we’re keen to know what trainees have said about...Read full article
The latest annual, national survey of Australia’s doctors in training reveals small but worrying signs of pressure on medical training.
Results of the 2022 Medical Training Survey (MTS) are broadly consistent with previous years, with some small but statistically significant variations in year-on-year results, including an increase in trainee workload, a dip in the quality of teaching, a drop in the number of trainees who would recommend their current training position or organisation and an increase in the number of trainees considering a future outside of medicine.
The MTS is a longitudinal survey, run by the Medical Board of Australia, that tracks feedback about the quality of medical training run in Australia. Stringent privacy controls make it safe and confidential for trainees to take part.
Each year, more than half Australia’s doctors in training share their insights in the MTS, with results signalling what’s going well in training and issues to...Read full article
A big thank you to all that participated!
More than half Australia’s doctors in training did the 2022 Medical Training Survey (MTS) – that’s more than 23,000 voices sharing insights into medical training.
Result will be published in February 2023, accessible in static reports and through an online data-dashboard that enables comparisons across training sites and with past years’ results. Data from past years is already being used across the health sector to drive improvements in medical training.
The MTS is a longitudinal survey that tracks the quality of medical training. Stringent privacy controls make it safe and confidential for trainees to take part. It is run by the Medical Board of Australia.
A huge thanks to every doctor in training who made time to do the 2022 MTS, despite training commitments and work. The 56.6 per cent response rate has generated a robust national dataset that will continue to shape improvements to training....Read full article
