Hospital term

Hospital term

If you begin your training with hospital terms, it’s your responsibility to make those placement arrangements and notify your training coordinator of the hospital term(s) you plan to complete. We don’t find hospital term placements for registrars.

Hospital training can be done at any accredited hospital in Australia or New Zealand and doesn’t need to be in your allocated training region. The hospital must be accredited by the relevant state or territory postgraduate medical council. You should check the accreditation status of the term before you start, as some hospitals may only have specific terms approved. For a list of postgraduate medical councils, visit the Medical Board of Australia website.

You can find out more about hospital terms in Hospital training.
