Direct costs associated with accreditation of training posts
STP training posts may not be occupied by overseas trainees employed by hospitals in other countries seeking a rotation through expanded settings within Australia
Training posts which are not considered to be new posts. A position will not be considered new if:
it has been funded by another organisation for more than 12 months within the last three years.
a position that was funded by another organisation within the last 12 months will need to demonstrate funding is not ongoing. This allows for short term funding from organisations such as charitable trusts. In this context, positions funded by the health setting, or a state and territory government, will not be considered new and will be ineligible for STP funding.
