Trainee selection for the RPA BPT Network is through the annual Junior Medical Officer Recruitment Campaign of NSW Health. The application and interview dates vary each year, but applications usually open in mid-late July and close in mid-August, with interviews held around early September.

Please note that NSW Health do not consider informal meetings prior to annual recruitment necessary. Any such meetings are NOT part of the NSW Health official recruitment process and do not influence a trainee's chance of obtaining an interview.

There are several opportunities to find out more about our training program:

Q+A Sessions 2018

We are hosting informal Q+A sessions in May, June and July for prospective trainees. These evenings are hosted by the BPT Training Team, Consultants involved in the program and BPTs/ATs who have experienced the program first hand. Prospective trainees have the opportunity to have questions answered in a formal panel discussion as well as informal discussion with these hosts. We will also provide some advice about preparing your CV for the recruitment process.

These evenings will be held in the RL Harris Room, Kerry Packer Education Centre (KPEC), Royal Prince Alfred Hospital from 5:30-7pm.
The dates for these evenings are:

  • Wednesday 23 May
  • Wednesday 13 June
  • Wednesday 18 July

Places are strictly by registration and limited to 45 trainees per evening. Registration is now FULL for the upcoming Q&A session on 18 July.
You are still encouraged to attend our annual Information Evening on 7 August where places are not limited (See below).

Information Evening 2018

Here we provide a comprehensive overview of our program and philosophy of training which is more in depth than the Q&A evenings. The training team members and current trainees will be on hand to answer any questions.

The information evening will be held in the Kerry Packer Auditorium, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital on Tuesday 7 August from 5:30-8:30pm. Places are not limited for this evening.
