Record response to National Survey of Trainee Doctors

The number of trainee doctors taking part in the annual Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board (PMETB) survey is up 27%.

The response rate for the 2008/9 survey is 82% after over 42,000 returns were received.

The results from the survey will be available to deaneries by the end of April and will be published on 11 May.

Patricia Le Rolland, PMETB’s director of quality, said: ‘Surveys offer trainees the opportunity to have their say and feed back on their training; this informs our visits and approvals work and ultimately highlights any areas deaneries will need to address.

‘The surveys are key for the effective quality assurance of training – especially when deaneries are using the information gathered to maximum effect in their quality management.’

This week sees the start of the trainers’ survey.
