Medical specialty training programs

In Queensland, specialist medical trainees can be allocated to a training position via three different avenues:

  1. a centrally managed Queensland Health pathway, network or training program
  2. directly by a Queensland Health facility accredited for training; or
  3. an individual specialist medical college, which allocates trainees to a Queensland facility

All applicants irrespective of their training program must apply to the RMO campaign application portal and be registered (or plan to register) with the relevant specialist medical college.
