QUESTION OF THE WEEK…
How do I get into a WBA program…?
Before you can take part in a workplace based performance assessment, you must have passed the AMC CAT MCQ Examination and be eligible for limited registration with the Medical Board of Australia. You need limited registration to be employed in an approved clinical position for workplace based assessment.
To apply for a workplace based assessment program, you first need to contact the relevant workplace based assessment manager at the site where you intend to work or are already working. The provider will explain the selection and application process and any additional requirements before offering you a place in the assessment program. Some providers require you to undertake a pre–workplace based assessment program in addition to meeting the AMC’s eligibility requirements.
The accredited provider has the final responsibility for offering places in its workplace based assessment program. The AMC has no role in securing employment for workplace based assessment.
Currently these are the only approved providers of WBA, which means if you are considering this option you will need to apply to work at one of their hospitals:
- Central Coast Local Health District
- Flinders Rural Health SA
- Hunter New England Local Health District
- Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District
- Launceston General Hospital
- Mid North Coast Local Health District
- Monash health
- WA Country Health Service
- Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service
