Training funding - EOIs to open

The Australian government is planning for its expression of interest online portal for Specialist Training Program funding to go live in October (date TBC).
The announcement means that training sites can express an interest in being considered for Specialist Training Program (STP) funding for 2017 and beyond. Training sites have four weeks from October (date to be confirmed) to submit their EOI.

Training sites will be able to submit an EOI by desktop, mobile, IPad or tablet. There is also the option to save a partially completed EOI at any time and return later to complete and submit.

Further information will be available via the ANZCA and Department of Health websites when it becomes available.

Training settings that lodge an EOI and are assessed by the colleges and jurisdictions to be potential suitable STP posts will be placed on the reserve list to be managed by the relevant specialist medical college. Posts on the reserve list may be funded in the event that a successful post does not go ahead. The colleges will be responsible for managing the reserve list in consultation with the department.
