Advanced Trainee Selection and Matching

The Advanced Trainee Selection and Matching Service (ATSM) is used to assist recruitment processes by some hospitals and specialty groups in Victoria, Tasmania and New South Wales.

The Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria (PMCV) will provide the 2022 ATSM service.

* Applicants for the Gastroenterology NSW match must also apply through the NSW Health website.

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

The ATSM service will cease from 2023 onwards, as advised in our April communications. Some specialty groups have indicated an intention to continue to use the PMCV service for their matching and recruitment in future years. More information will be made available on the PMCV website in due course.


2021 outcome

The 2021 ATSM service had 712 applicants for 378 positions. 16 matches were run in 2021, resulting in 331 successful applicant-position matches.
