Q. Can I apply for BPT3+ Match if I have not completed (or am not currently completing) my BPT2 year?

BPT3 positions are for the third year of Basic Physician Training. Generally, you would only apply for a BPT3 position if you have completed, or are in the process of completing a BPT2 year. There are some exceptions to this rule however, and you should seek advice from the BPT Coordinator at the Health Service/s that you are interested in applying to if you are not sure which position you should apply for.

Q. Can I receive a BPT3+ pre-match offer at another Health Service than the one where I am currently employed?

No, BPT3+ pre-match offers are for internal appointments only, i.e., a doctor working in a Victorian health service in 2023 continuing with the same employing health service in 2024.

Q. If I have been offered a pre-match, can I enter the BPT3+ Match as well?

If you have signed a contract for a pre-match, you should not complete an application for the BPT3+ 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.
