PGY2+ or Post Graduate Year 2
Postgraduate year 2 plus (PGY2+) is completed following internship but prior to fellowship and can consist of general, basic, vocational or pre-specialist training. This year also forms part of the Rural Generalist Pathway. This year consolidates competencies and provides time to consider future career options and is viewed jointly with PGY1 or Internship providing for continuous learning opportunities but allowing for greater independence and flexibility in terms and encouragement to accept greater responsibility. This makes for a balanced and generalist orientation to the first two years post graduation and access to vocational training offered through medical college.
There are no medical board requirements relative to PGY2 doctor’s clinical experience (no core term requirements)
Further information can be found on prevocational training from the Confederation of Postgraduate Medical Education Councils website.
