    How to apply for a specialist training position in Renal Medicine / Nephrology

    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.

    Advanced training positions in Nephrology are managed centrally through the Queensland Advanced Training in Nephrology Pathway. New and current trainee applicants apply via the Resident Medical Officer (RMO) Campaign.
