Resident Hospital Health Check Survey 2017

Contact Details

In March 2017, AMA Queensland conducted the second Resident Hospital Health Check Survey with Interns, Junior House Officers (JHOs) Senior House Officers (SHOs) and Continuing Residents (PGY3 plus) across Queensland. The survey domains included hospital culture, access to annual and professional development leave, education, bullying and harassment, and overtime. We received 465 responses to the survey, representing approximately 20% per cent of Queensland’s total approximate 2,267 Resident Medical Officers (RMOs).

The hospital grades were based on a weighting determined by asking the respondents to rank the areas of residency, which were most important to them. The top six priorities for residents were then determined. These results will be very helpful for you to consider ahead of the Intern campaign opening shortly.
