ACEM currently supports six trainee posts, and additional supervisor positions in Tasmanian Emergency Departments. Trainees rotate through the sites, gaining valuable experience and progressing along the pathway to Fellowship. Increasing training opportunities and length of time trainees spend at Royal Hobart, Launceston General or North–West General (Burnie) Hospitals, aims to translate into trainees remaining in, or returning to Tasmania after completing their training.
Tasmanian Project funding
The Tasmanian Project is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health (DoH) under the Specialist Training Program (STP). The Program was reviewed in 2017, and funding has been provided for all current posts for 2018.
Information about further funding, when available, it will be advertised here, and circulated widely.
