Welcome to Queensland Prevocational Medical Accreditation (QPMA)’s second year after a very successful 2015. QPMA is a business portfolio within Health Leaders Australia (HLA). HLA is contracted by the Queensland Health to serve as the Prevocational Medical accreditation Authority for the State of Queensland under the standards and other requirements of the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) and the Australian Medical Council (AMC). This role includes the provision of medical accreditation services for all facilities in the state offering, or seeking to offer, Intern (PGY1) and potentially Resident (PGY2) junior doctor prevocational training in Queensland.
QPMA aims to support all facilities in Queensland that currently train, or have a desire to train, interns and residents to reach and maintain nationally recognised standards in supervision, education, assessment, evaluation, safety and support. The introduction of a self-managed, locally controlled, incentive-based, peer-supported online evidence gathering accreditation portal in 2016 is an exciting development in this area.
QPMA is a service and support organisation that works with facilities during the evidence gathering phase of an accreditation cycle and when responding to outcomes from an accreditation adjudication. Facilities are accredited for four years with accreditation lapsing at the end of the fourth year. Facilities negotiate the timing of their next full accreditation review to be within the last calendar year of their existing accreditation. An appeals policy is available for all accreditation activities.
