Table D11: Postgraduate year 2: Commencing doctors by state/territory, 2004–2011

(a) These numbers are an underestimate as not all PGY2 posts are included in the postgraduate medical council computer match.
(b) Figure based on number of offers made.
(c) Commencement data is based upon the total number of declined job offers registered in the eRecruitment system.
(d) Approximate number only. The South Australian Institute of Medical Education and Training (SAIMET) was in its first year of managing Trainee Medical Officer (TMO) recruitment and accurate numbers were not available.
(e) Actual allocation not available. Figures based on number of offers made.
(f) A total of 632 HMO2 positions was included in the Computer Matching Process and only 581 positions were matched. From these 15 matched candidates declined their offer and 19 unmatched candidates accepted a position. Total number of doctors who started their PGY2 training via the Match was 585. A further 47 PGY2 posts were directly recruited by health services.
(g) Commencement data is approximate and is based upon the total number of acceptances registered in the eRecruitment system.
(h) Includes only the number of PGY2 commencing who completed internship in South Australia.
