The Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria was established in 1999 as an Incorporated Association following recommendations of the Medical Training Review Panel. It is the lead organisation in Victoria that is specifically concerned with the welfare of prevocational medical trainees in Victorian hospitals.

The Rules of the Council set out our statement of purposes and our governance requirements.
