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.

PESCIs are conducted face-to-face or by videoconference for those doctors in distant States of Australia or overseas. Videoconferences are not the preferred method of conducting a PESCI.
