Considering an advanced training opportunity? Looking to enhance your skills and knowledge?

You could be eligible for one of four $5,000 Grants available to assist doctors undertaking specialist training opportunities in Australia and overseas.

The Program is open to doctors who are in their 1st to 5th post graduate year, or who are enrolled in an accredited College or Society training program or have completed this training within the last two years.

Examples of eligible training include:

  • Postgraduate study
  • Specialised fellowships
  • Placements with volunteer organisations
  • Indigenous community placements
  • Research in a specific area of medicine
  • Other advanced training outside of a doctor’s accredited College or Society training program.

To see the potential of a DIT Grant and learn more about the breadth of available training opportunities, view our online library of recipient reports. Training undertaken has varied greatly – both in terms of training type and location. Reports cover recipients’ personal and professional challenges and offer a great resource for doctors considering further training.

For more information and to apply online visit the link below, or contact our team on 1800 777 156 or by email at

Be quick – applications for the Program close on Friday, 3 November 2017.
