This paper reports on a validation study of the Junior Doctor Assessment Tool as used for PGY1 doctors to evaluate the psychometric properties of the instrument and to explore the effect of length of experience as a PGY1 on assessment scores.

This validation study of the Australian developed Junior Doctor Assessment Tool as it was used in three public and other associated hospitals in Western Australia for PGY1 across a two year period addressed two core aims, namely: (1) to evaluate the psychometric properties of the instrument; (2) to explore the effect of length of experience as a PGY1 on assessment scores.

While statistically significant, there appeared to be little practical influence on scores obtained by the number of times they were assessed.
