Current Projects

Speciality Training

Project lead: Ru Dee Chung
This project aims to create a free, accessible and comprehensive resource identifying the requirements for each specialty program for medical student and junior doctors to help with their career planning.


PGY2 Education Training

The Education Projects aim to make recommendations for a state-wide PGY2+ education program through identifying current barriers and possible solutions to enable implementation of such a program across health services in Victoria.


JMO Medical Educator Model

Project lead: Cassie Spanos

To further develop upon previous work where prevocational doctors “Learn by Teaching”. In this mode, prevocational doctors teach medical students through an innovative and comprehensive online management platform. Medical students and prevocational doctors may list and advertise classes for face-to-face lesson delivery. Prevocational doctors are supported as early-career teaching clinicians with a longitudinal education support package.


Furthering Our Understanding of Prevocational Medical Training

Project lead: Trudy Hong

Previous work from the Education Working Group established the current practices of prevocational medical training. There is a clear discrepancy that regional and rural sites are disadvantaged by access to training and the group seeks to develop a means of understanding this discrepancy further.


Teaching and education during COVID-19

Project lead: Sue Sritharan

Normal educational programs (lectures and tutorials) have largely ceased amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and many health services have transitioned to a limited teleconference education model. We aim to minimise this disruption to education by collating education resources, study tools or innovative strategies to continue and support JMO education.


Cover/Night Support

Project lead: Vincent Wong

This project aims to help improve the support provided to junior doctors during cover or night shifts by identifying successful strategies already in place and advocating for their implementation across other health networks.


Wellbeing and Emotional Support During COVID-19

Project lead: Manisha Koppa

This project targets the theme of wellbeing of junior doctors. There are two components to the project.  One aspect targets registrars and consultants to prompt them to consider the wellbeing of the junior doctors that are part of their team and under their leadership, and to provide them with strategies to improve junior doctor wellbeing in a practical and accessible manner. Another aspect of the project is to develop distribution of posters at hospital sites to encourage hospital staff to engage in important self-care routines.


Collating COVID-19 Research and Research Opportunities

Project lead: Srikar Boddupalli

This project aims to help improve the support provided to junior doctors during cover or night shifts by identifying successful strategies already in place and advocating for their implementation across other health networks.
