Trainee Positions

There are a number of training positions in Victoria that are not currently recruited via this website/process.

Please direct queries to individual Departments if you are interested to work for them.  We have listed some of these here to assist trainees to find appropriate positions, but this list is not exhaustive / complete, and is not maintained from year to year.


Additional Positions / Sites performing direct recruitment:

  • Paediatric ED positions are recruited directly by some departments for ACEM trainees, and only a limited number of roles are placed into the match
  • PICU and Retrieval roles are recruited directly by Royal Children's Hospital and Monash Health
  • Most Subspecialty fellow/registrar positions (e.g. Cardiology, Gastroenterology, etc) at Royal Children's Hospital and Monash Children's Hospital are advertised and recruited separately.  
  • Most NICU's currently recruit their senior roles (Fellows) directly - this recruitment occurs prior to the VPAT process commencing - although Monash NICU does recruit limited Fellow positions within the VPAT site.

    Other Sites / Positions

    This site has been collaboratively developed to try and recruit centrally within Victoria.  This allows applicants to apply to multiple sites with just one application.  Additional departments and health services may join over the coming years.  If you are a Registrar working in an area that is not yet on this site - please consider promoting this process to these services.  If you are a department with accredited paediatric AT positions and would like to know more about this process, please contact alison.pearce@wh.org.au to discuss how you might participate in centralised recruitment.
