The majority of junior doctors, including those at PGY2+ level, typically commence their training year at the start of January each year. PMCT departments at each of the three sites (Hobart, Launceston and Burnie) develop and run a range of orientation programs for junior doctors.

RMOs at PGY2+ level will usually meet with PMCT staff at the commencement of their employment with the THS. These meetings provide an overview of the following:

  • An outline the expectations of a RMO from a learning, outcome, and professionalism perspective

  • Overview of term requirements, including assessment

  • Overview of education requirements, including completion of mandatory skills training

  • Provision of relevant documents including a term description for the commencement term, and a copy of the ROVER (rolling handover) document, in addition to other important information

Please refer to the individual hospital site sections for further information about the Orientation programs.
