Additional Specialty Information

ATSM

  • is an online documentation and preference system that electronically matches eligible applicants to Advanced Training positions at RACP accredited training sites based on the numerical preferences the applicant and employer enter into the ATSM system.
  • provides participating specialty groups, employing hospitals and Advanced Trainees with a centralised location and platform to fill and secure Advanced Training positions.
  • It is not a recruitment service and has no role in the recruitment, selection, selection standards or criteria, all of which is the responsibility of the employer.
  • It does not guarantee employment.
  • does not guarantee that vacant positions will be filled.
  • does not provide access to employers or Advanced Training candidates who do not participate in the ATSM service.

The role of the College

The College facilitates the administration of the ATSM service and online system.

How does ATSM work:

  1. Applicants apply for positions by completing a CV template, nominating referees and if selected, attend interviews.
  2. The system then electronically matches applicants to positions based on the numerical preferences the applicant and employer have entered into the ATSM system.
  3. If an applicant or employer cannot be matched with their preferred choice, the system attempts to match them to their next choice and so on.

Match Result

Match results are released to Specialty Societies who inform participating Heads of Department.

Employers are then responsible for contacting applicants directly to conduct their own recruitment process and finalise offers of employment independent of the College.

  • You must meet the eligibility criteria for your Advanced Training specialty program to apply for Advanced Training positions through the ATSM Service.
