How do I apply for IRTP funding?

RACMA receives funding for nine FTE IRTP positions. All positions are allocated to existing settings, however, RACMA manages a Reserve List of suitable posts that will be used to fill vacancies. 

Reserve lists are refreshed through Expression of Interest (EOI) processes that are run by the Department of Health (Australia) via an online process.  It is not known when the next EOI process will be held, however if you wish to be notified when a new EOI is being offered, please email stp@racma.edu.au to register your interest or complete this FORM.

EOI Process


RACMA is responsible for managing the Reserve List in consultation with the Department of Health (Australia). Please see the Operational Framework for further information about the EOI process and eligibility.

Additional Information

Settings that participate in IRTP acknowledge they only provide a contribution towards the cost of employing and providing training to a trainee. The funded setting is responsible for covering the remaining cost.

Candidates cannot apply for IRTP funding and should speak to their health setting if they wish to participate in the program.

IRTP funding is intended to support medical administration registrar positions, rather than substantive (e.g. Deputy DMS) roles.

Specialist International Medical Graduate (SIMG) trainees may occupy STP-funded settings if they are applying for permanent residency in Australia.
