  1. 1. Expert Impartial Decision Makers! NSW | Medical Assessors The NSW Motor Accidents Authority (MAA) leads and supports the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance scheme that aims to minimise the human impact of motor accidents. Since 1999 the MAA have appointed a panel of independent expert Medical Assessors to determine medical disputes between claimants and insurers about treatment and permanent impairment. These decisions are binding on the parties and the courts. The current term of appointment for Medical Assessors is nearing its end, and the MAA is calling for applications from all interested doctors, dentists and allied health professionals seeking to be appointed to its panel of Medical Assessors for the next term which will end in June 2013. All current (2007-2010) Medical Assessors need to apply for appointment for the new term. If you believe you have the skills and abilities to independently assess medical disputes in a fair, timely and impartial manner in a well recognised, well supported and personally rewarding area and you would like to make a valuable contribution to the people of NSW, then you should consider applying. Appointment as a Medical Assessor is not a full time commitment and undertaking this part time role would allow you to continue clinical practice, which is encouraged and preferred by the MAA. Whilst the MAA is looking to appoint Medical Assessors from across a broad range of clinical specialties (a full list is available at the application web site), some areas of specific need include; • Adult and Paediatric Brain Injury • Dermatology • General Paediatrics • Obstetrics and Gynaecology • Adult and Paediatric Psychiatry • Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery • Geriatric Medicine • Plastic Surgery • Clinical Psychology • Endocrinology To download a Medical Assessor “Applicant Information Pack”, detailing what you need to provide as part of your application, as well as a copy of the Medical Assessor Fee Schedule, Terms of Appointment and Code of Conduct, please go to Please note that only online applications will be accepted and these will close at 5:00pm 29 October 2010. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about being a Medical Assessor, the MAA will be hosting an information evening on Wednesday 20 October 2010 from 6pm to 7:30pm at the Hyde Park Forum, Level 1, 271 Elizabeth Street Sydney.
