Advanced Trainee Selection and Matching

The Advanced Training Selection and Matching Service (ATSM) is used as part of recruitment by some RACP specialties in different states across Australia.

The 2020 ATSM matching service is provided by the Post-graduate Medical Council of Victoria (PMCV).

Register for ATSM

To apply for a position in an ATSM match, you must register a candidate account with PMCV.

Note: Read all information provided when you apply as requirements and key recruitment dates vary between matches. You can only apply for one active ATSM match at a time via the PMCV website.

* To apply for NSW Advanced Training positions, you must apply through the ATSM service and also directly with NSW Health. Check application dates for NSW Health's 2021 clinical year recruitment campaign because some are different to ATSM.

For positions with other specialty groups and health settings, check relevant recruitment websites.

Progress to provisional Advanced Training

If you were planning to sit the Divisional Clinical Exam this year, you can apply for provisional Advanced Training if you meet the eligibility requirements. Check these requirements carefully before applying for AT positions.

2019 ATSM outcome

The 2019 ATSM service was a success with 534 trainees registered and 446 applied for positions. 12 matches were run in three batches, resulting in 254 successful applicant-position matches.

256 women applied for positions, resulting in 160 successful matches. 247 men applied for positions, resulting in 94 successful matches.
