    Queensland Prevocational Medical Accreditation (QPMA) is accredited by the Medical Board of Australia as the intern training accreditation authority for Queensland.  QPMA’s prevocational accreditation program implements and monitors standards for the training, supervision and welfare of prevocational trainees in their intern (PGY1) and resident (PGY2) years. The self-managed, locally controlled, incentive-based, per supported accreditation process of facilities and corresponding prevocational medical training programs offered by QPMA is a quality assurance process that establishes and monitors standards for prevocational medical training to ensure high quality clinical training for interns and residents. This accreditation process assists facilities to provide the best possible environment for the training of interns and residents by ensuring they receive appropriate supervision, orientation, clinical experience, education, assessment and support.
