Queensland Basic Paediatric Training Network

As the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to evolve, certain elements of the network selection processes and dates may change.  Please check this website regularly for updates.

The network provides centralised recruitment, selection and allocation for doctors intending to commence their first or second year of basic paediatric training in Queensland.

The aim of the network is to improve access to training, broaden the clinical experience available to trainees and increase the capacity for basic paediatric training across Queensland and in Darwin.

Trainees remain on the network for the duration of their basic training subject to ongoing satisfactory performance.


The network supports and promotes paediatric education and training, including the Paediatric Clinical Examination Preparation Program (PCEPP) for RACP paediatric clinical exam candidates.

The 2020 PCEPP course has been cancelled due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
