Basic Physician Training (BPT)
Applications close 14 August 2016
The Alfred is recognised as a Level III training hospital by the RACP, and therefore all 36 months of basic training can be undertaken within its rotations.
In addition to rotations within Alfred Health, BPT 2/3 rotations include Frankston Hospital, Goulburn Valley Health, Mildura Base Hospital, and Calvary Health Care, Bethlehem.
Alfred Health boasts a high success rate in both the written and clinical FRACP exams and there is commitment by senior staff to support registrars through the exam process.
Rotations are tailored around exam / course times so candidates are local during exam preparation time.
Advanced training in General Medicine and most subspecialties can be undertaken at Alfred Health.
Alfred Health is a member of the Bayside - Peninsula Consortium.
