New eligibility criteria for 2018

Friday 12 May, 2017


 A major change to the eligibility criteria for Remote Stream applications has been announced for 2018.  

RVTS has now adopted the Modified Monash Model (MMM) to determine location eligibility for the Remote Stream.  

 Locations in Modified Monash Model Regions (MMM) 4,5,6 or 7 now qualify as eligible locations for the Remote Stream. 

This replaces the previous location criteria of ASGC-RA 2,3,4 or 5 and more than 80kms and 1 hour by road from a major tertiary hospital. 

 All other eligibility criteria for both the Remote and AMS streams remain unchanged.

The move to MMM provides an easier and simplified way to determine eligible locations for the RVTS Remote Stream training program as well as increased training opportunities for regional and rural Doctors and their communities.

 Applicants are encouraged to check their eligibility here before applying.

 First round online applications for 2018 open on the 5th June - 30th June.
