1. Directed Placement

Directed Placement

16 November – 4 December 2021

This process is for registrars and practices who remain unmatched at the completion of the Competitive Placement Process.

Throughout the full Registrar Placement Process MCCC will be monitoring vacancies and providing advice to both registrars and practices of possible placements.

However, should unsuccessful preferences occur despite this advice, any unmatched registrars and practices will need to be placed through this directed placement.

17 November 2021 – Directed Placement opens

Unplaced registrars discuss with their REAPS Coordinator the training posts available to them both within their own region and in other MCCC regions.

Unmatched practices are notified that unmatched registrars will be directed to apply to their clinic. Practices should notify MCCC as soon as a suitable applicant is identified during the Directed Placement period, as there is no official preferencing.

Applicants applying for second intake for the 2022 AGPT Program

Most candidates who successfully obtain a place with MCCC in the second AGPT intake, during August/September, will undertake hospital term for their first year of training. To avoid disappointment of being unable to secure a placement, those GP trainees are strongly encouraged to obtain a hospital placement for 2022.

At the time of publishing this information, second intake AGPT Practice placement opportunities are limited to the North East Region and a minimal number of vacancies in the South West Region (i.e. Hamilton & Camperdown).

Placement into these Practice vacancies will be subject to candidates:

  • Securing a Practice Placement in the vacancies available before 15 December 2021 and submitting to MCCC any Medicare Provider Number information required within required timelines; and
  • Not having accepted an offer of employment with a hospital; and
  • Submitting and meeting Hospital Experience Assessment requirements within MCCC timelines

Further detail regarding timelines and requirements will be provided to candidates seeking any of these Practice Placements closer to the time.
