The Tasmanian Project was first implemented in 2014. ACEM currently facilitates six trainee posts, along with complementary supervisory positions in Tasmanian Emergency Departments.
Tasmanian Project funding
The Tasmanian Project is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health under the Specialist Training Program (STP). The Program was reviewed in 2017, and funding has been provided for all current posts for 2018.
The Department of Health has finalised the review of the Tasmanian Project, Specialist Training Program (STP).
The funding recommendation for ACEM from the review is to continue to support and fund the project at the same level.
All specialty colleges are required to review the current Tasmanian posts and provide a report with recommendations to the Department in the second half of 2019.
Information about further funding will be advertised here and circulated widely when it becomes available.
