Victorian training

Victorian trainee courses

Our courses are scheduled to run throughout the year. These courses are specifically designed to assist and prepare trainees for the primary and final written, and oral exams.

These courses are comprehensive, and cover many of the curriculum topics that are potentially included in the exams. The written components of the courses are led by course convenors, Dr Adam Skinner, Dr Glenn Downey and Dr Damien Castanelli.

The practice viva sessions are led by medical registrars, at the various participating hospitals throughout Melbourne. Find and enrol in courses here.


Victorian trainee social network and social events

The Victorian Trainee Committee has put together a closed Facebook group as a way for Victorian trainees to stay connected. Please request to join and get involved! This group has been started to improve interaction between the registrars across the state, as part of our efforts to improve trainee welfare.

Social network:

See here for the Facebook link. Please note that it is a closed group, so you need to be added or approved following a request to be added.

On the facebook site we will also be advertising trainee social events, and notification of these events will also be emailed and advertised on this page, see below.
