How the RMO campaign works

Queensland Health facilitates an annual campaign to recruit resident medical officers (RMOs) and registrars for positions in Hospital and Health Services (HHSs) across the state.

From their pool of applicants received via the campaign, specialist medical colleges, Queensland Health facilities, vocational training pathways, networks and central allocation programs run their own meritorious recruitment processes.

Positions

Applications to the following position levels are accepted via the RMO campaign:

  • Registrars and Senior Registrars
  • Principal House Officers (PHOs)
  • Senior House Officers (SHOs)
  • Junior House Officers (JHOs)

How to apply

Applications are lodged via a central online application portal which allows applicants to nominate specific preferences for facilities, positions and specialty/sub-specialty areas (if applicable).

If you are applying for, or have been accepted onto an accredited training program with a specialist medical college, you will still need to submit an online RMO application.

Paper applications will not be accepted.

Once the on-line application period closes, applications are assessed in a series of recruitment rounds according to position level and preferences. A meritorious recruitment process is conducted by the relevant specialist medical colleges, Queensland health vocational training pathway, network, central allocation programs and HHSs.

If you do not receive an offer during the review and selection round, you can change your preferences to remaining vacancies at a later time.
