Prevocational accreditation

The Health Education and Training Institute (HETI) is accredited by the Medical Board of Australia as the intern training accreditation authority for New South Wales.

The HETI Prevocational Accreditation Program implements and monitors standards for the training and welfare of prevocational trainees in their first two postgraduate years (PGY1 and PGY2).

HETI is responsible for ensuring the health services it accredits are compliant with the NSW Prevocational Education and Training Standards for prevocational training providers. Its functions include setting standards for education and training and accreditation of institutions for prevocational education and supervision.
