HMO2/RG2 Pre-Match2022-05-05T03:22:12+00:00

Q. Can I receive a HMO pre-match offer at another Health Service than the one where I am currently employed?

No, HMO pre-Match offers are for internal appointments only, i.e., a doctor working in a Victorian health service in 2022 continuing with the same employing health service in 2023.

The only exceptions are as follows:

  • Current interns in Rural Generalist internship programs (RG1) may accept a pre-match offer with another health service within the same region for their RG2 year, in order to obtain the rotations required for the RG pathway. These doctors must be on a defined RG training pathway and will have discussed their training options with the RG Coordinator/s in their region.
  • The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) do not employ interns. RCH are permitted to make pre-match offers to doctors not currently employed at that health service. Please note that RCH pre-match offers are reported to the PMCV. If you have accepted a pre-match offer with RCH and enter the HMO Match, this will be reported to RCH.

Q. If I have been offered a pre-match, can I enter the HMO Match as well?

If you have signed a contract for a pre-match, you should not complete an application for the HMO Match.

If candidates identified as holding a pre-match offer enter the Match, this will be reported to the health service with which they have accepted the pre-match offer.

If candidates reported as holding a pre-match offer remain in the Match after the final withdrawal date and they are allocated to a position via the Match, they will be bound to accept their matched position and forfeit their pre-match offer.

Q. I have verbally been offered a position but I have not been given a contact or I have a contract but have not signed it. Is this still considered an offer?

Contracts should be issued and signed for it to be a binding offer. Please speak to your Health Service as soon as possible if you have not received a contract, or you do not wish to accept the pre-match offer you have received.

Q. What if I don’t want to accept a pre-match offer and go into the Match instead?

You need to advise the Health Service making the offer that your preference is to enter the Match. You should not sign a contract. Some health services may permit you to hold a pre-match offer and participate in the Match, but you must discuss this with the health service. If you do enter the Match and you are allocated to a position, you will be bound to accept the matched position and forfeit your pre-match offer.
