IRTP funding?

IRTP is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health’s Specialist Training Program.

The Commonwealth Department of Health held an Expression of Interest (EOI) process for hospitals and other training providers interested in hosting an IRTP post in 2018. Successful sites were announced in December 2017. There are currently no details available about any future funding rounds, but should funding become available it will be advertised here, and widely circulated.
