We will be seeking expressions of interest for two Regional and Rural General Medicine Advance Training positions. Trainees participating in these positions will receive their first core year of advance training in Katherine Hospital in Northern Territory (6 months core General Medicine) and Mildura Base Hospital/Mildura Cardiology in Victoria (6 months of core subspecialty, Cardiology). The second core year of advance training, subject to performance review, will be provided at the Alfred Health receiving 6 months of acute care medicine and 6 months of core sub-specialty training.
