Health Workforce Assessment Victoria (HWAV) 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 limited or provisional registration to work in General Practice in any State or Territory within Australia.
HWAV is accredited by the Australian Medical Council (AMC) to conduct PESCIs. The PESCI is “Position Specific” and accordingly, the applicant must have a Position Description and Supervised Practice Plan against which to be assessed.
HWAV conducts PESCIs weekly on Wednesdays and Thursdays, with assessment appointment times at; 9:00am, 12:00pm and 2:30pm and usually we are booked 4-6 weeks in advance. We suggest you take this into consideration when planning your PESCI.
Please note: the PESCI report is position specific and not transferable.
All PESCIs are conducted face-to-face in our offices, located at the World Trade Centre in the Melbourne CBD.
PESCI via teleconference/video conference is available in a limited capacity.
