About the Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria

The Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria (PMCV) was established in 1999 and seeks to improve the educational and training opportunities available to support the welfare and career development of doctors, graduate nurses and midwives who have recently graduated or commenced work in the Victorian health system.

  • Education: Facilitating educational courses for senior staff to improve their supervision and clinical skills

  • Workforce: Administering the Allocation & Placement Service to match medical students to health services
