    2016 MSCV Intern Application Survey Results

    MSCV is pleased to present the findings of our inaugural Intern Application Survey. This year following the Victorian intern application period, MSCV sought feedback from applicants on the match and its associated application process. The survey collected responses to a wide variety of topics, and has given insight to several issues faced by applicants during the match.

    The results of this survey have formed the basis for a number of recommendations for improvements to the application system. These encompass both centralised, and hospital-network controlled parts of the process. This report will help guide MSCV’s advocacy in this area; allowing us to work to ensure a fairer, simpler, and more accessible application process in the future.

    MSCV has already met with key stakeholders regarding the report, and is pleased to update that some of our suggested changes are already being investigated for the 2017/18 Match.

    Please find the full report here.

    Internship Allocation Process Survey

    The increasing number of Victorian medical graduates is placing significant pressure the availability and allocation of internship positions. The aim of this survey is to find out what senior medical students think about the current internship allocation system in Victoria as well as some proposed changes that could be implemented in the future. The results of this survey will help guide MSCV’s representation of student views in the ongoing review and reform of the Victorian internship application and allocation process.

    This survey will be emailed to you for you to complete if you are a medical student enrolled at Victorian medical school and are currently completing, or have completed, your penultimate year of medical studies.
