SURVEY FAQs

What is the purpose of the Medical Training Survey?

Medical Training Survey results will provide a snapshot of medical training in Australia, through the eyes of doctors in training. Survey data will be used by employers, colleges, educators and others to strengthen medical training.

By getting anonymous feedback from doctors in training, the survey will deliver robust national data that will help identify strengths in medical training, as well as potential issues so these can be addressed.

How do I complete the survey online?

Doctors in training can do the survey on their phone, tablet or laptop in two ways:

  • interns and international medical graduates just click on the survey link sent in the email invitation from Ahpra (search your inbox for Ahpra or email heading: Medical Training Survey)
  • all other doctors in training can do the MTS when they renew their medical registration.

Just follow the prompts after renewing your registration and doing the workforce survey, which is different from the Medical Training Survey.The Medical Training Survey will appear after you pay your medical registration. If you can’t complete the survey when you renew, Ahpra will send you a unique survey link embedded in your confirmation of registration email.
