This annual 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.
