The MSOD Project – A Tool for Medical Workforce Planning & Education Evaluation
The Medical Schools Outcomes Database and Longitudinal Tracking (MSOD) Project is the world’s first project for tracking medical students through medical school and into training. All Australian and New Zealand medical schools are involved in this landmark project.
A pilot study was conducted in 2005 and MSOD began collecting data nationally in 2006. There are records of over 30,000 participants and longitudinal data for over 9,000 graduates.
The project is funded by Health Workforce Australia (2011 onwards) and the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing (2004-2011).

The MSOD Project team is based at the Medical Deans’ Office.
