There are no limitations whatsoever on where you can undertake your PV Training as a BMP Scheme participant.

However, if you signed a Deed of Agreement between 2008-2015 or if you signed the Scaling Deed of Variation, you may be able to reduce your Return of Service Period (RoSP) by undertaking your PV Training from your second year (PGY2) by working in any location other than an Inner Metropolitan Area and by meeting the other requirements for Eligible PV Training set out in your Deed of Agreement.

Once you know a location where you would like to undertake PV Training, using the address of the practice:

  • check the locator map at DoctorConnect for RA status:
    • If shown as ASGC-RA 2-5/RRMA 2-7, the location is eligible to reduce your RoSP by undertaking pre-vocational training at that location.
    • If ASGC- RA1/RRMA 1, check the locator map at DoctorConnect for metropolitan status:
      • If Outer Metropolitan, the location is eligible to reduce your RoSPby undertaking PV training at that location.
      • If Inner Metropolitan, the location is not eligible to reduce your RoSP by undertaking PV training at that location.

If you wish to count Eligible PV Training towards your RoSO, you must apply in advance of the proposed training.
