How does the Junior Doctor Training Program work?
The replacement of the former Commonwealth Medical Internship Program with the JDTP has meant there are some slight changes to the processes of application and recruitment. The process is detailed here:
The application form for the JDTP posted on DOH website prior to the EOI opening in September.
- Release of Recruitment Information
The department provides the list of JDTP eligible candidates to private hospitals participating in the Private Health Stream.
- Hospitals contact applicants
At the beginning of the recruitment period, each hospital taking part in the JDTP is able to contact the applicants.
Interested applicants may be contacted for interview.
- Offer of Internships
During the recruitment period hospitals make offers to eligible JDTP candidates.
- Accept Offer
Eligible JDTP candidate accepts offer.
Private hospital and candidate separately notify the department of acceptance of the offer.
- Employment Contract
Private hospitals enter into employment contracts with eligible JDTP candidates accepting JDTP places, conditional on the Commonwealth funding being received.
