The roll-back process only applies to applicant group A candidates who tentatively accepted their first round offer.
The roll-back occurs after the ballot and first round offers have been finalised. It aims to match applicant group A candidates to a higher preference hospital should a vacancy become available due to another applicant group A candidate declining their offer.
Roll-back is a one-off process and depends on the number of position offers declined in first round offers.
Applicant group A candidates who have tentatively accepted a lower preference offer may be contacted with a higher preference (if it is now available).
The applicant who was last balloted out during the random ballot process will be the first applicant to be contacted if a higher preference is available, this process is repeated (second last applicant balloted out) until all positions are filled.
The whole roll-back process happens in 1 day.
Find the key campaign dates
All applicants (or their proxies) participating in the roll-back process (i.e. those who have tentatively accepted their Queensland offer) need to be:
- contactable on the day.
- ready to accept or decline the roll-back offer at the time of the telephone call from the Intern Campaign Coordinator.
Proxy details need to be emailed to the Intern Campaign Coordinator before the day.
- If you are not contactable by phone you will miss out on the offer:
- we do not leave voicemail messages
- you will not be able to call back later with a decision.
If you are contacted:
- You can decline the higher preference and accept the original offer without being penalised.
- You can verbally accept the higher preference. You will receive an email with details of the new offer after the roll-back process has concluded that day and you must formally accept the offer via the online application system by 3pm.
If you are not contacted:
- A higher preference is not available.
- You must still log in to the application portal and accept/decline your original offer by 3pm that day.
