Clinical Experiences are designed to provide you with numerous learning opportunities that will further enhance your clinical skills in a range of clinical settings. Not only will this provide you with a broad generalist experience in your prevocational training, but it will also help you prepare for clinical practice in a number of healthcare settings across Victoria.

What are the Clinical Experiences?

What are the Clinical Experience requirements?

PGY1 doctors are required to gain experience in all four Clinical Experiences, whilst PGY2s will be required to gain experience in categories A, B and C. In PGY2 there is also the opportunity to undertake a term in non-direct clinical care (for example: medical education/administration, pathology or research).

Prevocational doctors will still be able to preference their rotation selections.

The term descriptions for each rotation will indicate which of these clinical experiences are covered in that term (one or two per term). 

How is the Clinical Experience allocated?

The Clinical Experience classification is determined by the clinical units at each health service, in collaboration with the Medical Education Unit and all Clinical Experience classifications are reviewed and endorsed by PMCV Accreditation. Classifications may vary between health services.
