Postgraduate Year 2+

Recruitment and allocation of Resident Medical Officer (RMO) positions (Postgraduate Year 2 and above) in South Australia occurs on an annual basis. It is undertaken through a centralised process administered by the South Australian Education and Training (SA MET) Unit on behalf of the South Australian Department of Health and South Australian Local Health Networks (LHNs).  SA MET is not, however the employing body and does not provide employment contracts. Contracts are provided by the relevant hospitals/networks. Applications for RMO positions in SA must be completed online.

Allocation of Advanced Specialist Training Positions (Registrars) is not undertaken by SA MET. Recruitment for these positions is undertaken directly by hospitals.

Some training programs may choose to advertise positions outside of SA MET’s allocation process. If you are unsure, we recommend you speak to the relevant training program contact person to clarify.

Further information on the training programs available at each hospital is located on the Local Health Networks (LHNs) page.

Applicants seeking a part time contract or who are not able to commence on the February start date, are not eligible to apply for a RMO position through SA MET. You will need to negotiate employment directly with the hospital outside of the SA MET’s allocation process.
