How to apply for a specialist training position in Clinical Immunology / Allergy

Applicants will first need to complete Basic Physician training and can apply at Queensland Basic Physician Training Network (Adult Medicine).

Queensland Basic Physician Training Network (Adult Medicine) 
Applicants applying to one of the Queensland Networks need to refer to the network websites before proceeding, depending on whether you're applying for Queensland Basic Physician Training Network (Adult Medicine) or Queensland General Medicine Advanced Training Network. The Queensland Basic Physician Network provides centralised recruitment, selection and allocation of BPTs intending to commence their second or third year of basic physician training in Queensland. First Year basic training positions are recruited directly by the individual Hospital and Health Service (HHS) within Queensland - NOT via the network. These appointments are generally at the JHO or SHO level and information relating to these positions can be accessed via the available positions within each hospital.

The Advanced Training program is managed centrally by a panel comprised of Clinical Immunology directors from accredited training facilities. The selection process is a panel interview with directors of each participating facility.

Apply online through the Resident Medical Officer (RMO) campaign.

Applications for Advanced Training in Immunology and Allergy – Joint RACP / RCPA can be made directly to the RACP through the apply online link.
