Specialty training programs
In Queensland, specialist medical trainees can be allocated to a training position via three separate avenues:
- a centrally managed Queensland Health pathway, network or training program
- directly by a Queensland Health facility accredited for training; or
- an individual specialist medical college, which allocates trainees to a Queensland facility
Review your discipline's webpage for information regarding eligibility, recruitment processes, important dates, and other specific requirements needed to acquire a training position. All candidates irrespective of their training program must apply via the RMO campaign applicant portal and be registered (or plan to register) with the relevant specialist medical college.

The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) has recently advised that its 2022 exam schedule for both Adult Medicine and Paediatrics and Child Health has been extended, with some examination results for Adult Medicine not released until early September. Please refer to the RACP’s website for detailed information.
Accordingly, affected applicants are encouraged to use their second to fifth preferences for back-up options or are able to amend their preferences during the Candidate Re-preference round. If you have not passed you RACP clinical exam and have been advised after the Candidate Re-preference Round, please contact RMO-Recruitment@health.qld.gov.au and we will be able to assist you.
