With our support, the doctors of tomorrow are better trained, educated, and supported in their early careers

With the increased growth in the number of Medical Trainees and Interns, it became clear that Junior Doctors weren’t feeling like their voices and experiences within the Health Service were being heard, or that they were being looked after in their careers.

The Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria (PMCV) was established in 1999 to address these matters. We now support the more than 3,000 medical prevocational trainees, managers, and leaders across the Victorian health system.

We work closely with Healthcare Services, General Practice, health professionals and other public health organisations across Victoria to ensure that our contribution is relevant and responsive to the needs of the medical prevocational trainees.

Some of the ways we support JMOs is through:

The Postgraduate Medical Council of Victora actively seeks ways to improve the educational and training available to support the welfare and career development of doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals who have recently graduated or commenced work in Victoria.

Quality workplaces

Accreditation and oversight of JMO training

We’re approved by the Medical Board of Australia as an Intern training authority, as well as being authorised to review postgraduate year two posts (PGY2). The PMCV also provides a safe and independent space for JMOs to share their thoughts, feelings and experience without directly involving their employer.

Supporting rural areas with medical services

We organise rural and educational scholarships that enable participation in educational and training opportunities. We also partner with the Statewide Victorian Rural Generalist Program (VRGP) team to aid in developing the program and improving access to it. The contemporary, innovative and meaningful health education and training that we develop and deliver helps to support a world-class workforce in providing improved health outcomes for patients.

Educating senior staff for better outcomes

We facilitate courses on communicating under pressure, dealing with conflict, IMG orientation program, and leadership skills through our Clinical Leadership in Practice program.
