About us

Health Workforce Assessment Victoria was established in July, 2010 to conduct Pre-employment Structured Clinical Interviews (PESCIs) for General Practice.

PESCIs are conducted for all IMGs wishing to obtain registration to enter General Practice in:

  • Victoria
  • Australian Capital Territory
  • Tasmania
  • Western Australia

We conduct PESCIs on behalf of employers, Medical General Practices and other recruitment agencies. The PESCI Assessment Interview is "Position Specific" and accordingly, the applicant must have a Position Description and Supervised Practice Plan to be assessed against at the time of the interview.

HWAV regularly conducts PESCI Assessment Interviews on Wednesdays and Thursdays of each week in every month, with assessment appointment times starting at 9:00am, 12:00pm and 2:30pm and usually we are booked 4-6 weeks in advance.  We suggest you would need to take this into consideration when planning your PESCI Assessment Interview. 

Unfortunately we are unable to offer PESCI Assessment Interview via videoconference.  All PESCI Assessment Interviews must be conducted on a face-to-face basis in our offices in the World Trade Centre in Melbourne.
