 The Victorian Basic Paediatric Training Consortium (VBPTC) is a 3-year program comprising of the Junior Resident Medical Officer (JRMO) year followed by the Senior Resident Medical Officer (SRMO) year, and finally the Registrar year.

The program rotates trainees through tertiary, outer metropolitan, regional and rural paediatric health services within Victoria.
