Allocation and Placement Service (formerly the Computer Matching Service)

- Please go to

The Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria administers an Allocation and Placement (Matching) Service to allocate Intern, HMO, BPT, Medical Radiations and Graduate Nursing/Midwife positions in Victorian hospitals and health services. The Service aims to simplify health services' appointment system and is conducted at the request of the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.

The Matching algorithm is purely a mathematical process which matches the preferences of both hospitals/health services and candidates. The matching algorithm was designed to be impartial to both hospitals/health services and candidates.

The PMCV runs the following matches:

  • Medical Internship Match
  • HMO, Basic Physician Training (BPT)1 & BPT2 Match
  • BPT3 Match
  • Medical Radiations Match
  • Graduate Nursing & Midwifery Program Match
  • Radiology Registrar Match
  • Haematology Registrar Match
  • Medical Oncology Registrar Match

The matching service is conducted online. Our online system enables candidates and hospitals/health services to register, submit their preferences or rankings, edit their preferences or rankings and view the results of matching.
