Online Application Process

  • Applications for 2024 positions open on 26th June and close on 24th July 2023.

  • Read about the application process here.  If you having difficulties applying please email vpat.recruitment@gmail.com

  • If you are not sure whether a job will meet your training requirements, it is recommended that you make contact with the health services directly to ensure you know what the position entails and whether it meets your training needs

  • Any un-allocated positions will be advertised directly by health services in August / September 2023

  • Applications require the following:

    • Form completely filled in, including your referee's details

    • Upload a CV and up to 4 cover letters for particular job types (NICU / Gen Paeds / Senior Registrar or Fellow roles / Community Registrars)

    • Referee contact details - this MUST include a valid email and phone number for each referee

    • Please ensure all your information is correct when you submit your application, including the correct email addresses for your referees (do NOT put in "test" emails, as this cannot be modified).  This form is not able to be edited once you have submitted!

    • Rank no more than 10 positions you are interested in - do NOT rank a position if you are not genuinely prepared to accept 

      • If you are genuinely prepared to accept ANY position, at any health service within VPAT (not just any of your preferenced jobs), then please tick the "Yes" box at the top - every site will then review your application.  If you are indicating "Yes" then it would be prudent to list the full number of preferences available to you.

      • A second round will occur for those who do not secure one of their initial preferences - however you will not be invited to this second round if you decline your first round offer.  If you think you would decline a first-round offer from any of the health services, then you should tick "No" to the question about accepting any position at any health service within VPAT.

    • Click the link and record your interview - this MUST be done before the closing date for applications.

    • You may view your submission or withdraw your application via the Victorian Paediatric Advanced Trainee (VPAT) portal (https://vpat.au).


  • This site will be open for applications from 26 June 2023, with applications closing on 24 July 2023. 
    • Applications will be reviewed during August with a single offer occurring in late August 2023. The offer you receive will be the highest preference match possible.
