The accreditation of undergraduate medical education in Australia.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The Australian Medical Council was established in 1985 with one of its three functions being the accreditation of medical schools and of courses leading to basic medical qualifications. The Accreditation (Standing) Committee has developed guidelines for assessment and accreditation in Australia, and commenced its programme of visits to Australian medical faculties in March 1988, with the tenth faculty scheduled to be visited in September 1993. This article describes the process of assessment and accreditation developed in Australia by the Australian Medical Council. A later article will discuss the issues in medical education that have been identified during the process of accreditation.
