Table D11: Postgraduate year 2: Commencing doctors by state/territory, 2004–2012

(a) These numbers are an underestimate as not all PGY2 posts are included in the postgraduate medical council computer match.
(b) Actual allocation is not available. Figures based on number of offers made.
(c) Figure based on number of offers made.
(d) Commencement data is based upon the total number of declined job offers registered in the eRecruitment system.
(e) Approximate number only. PMCSA is in its first year of managing TMO recruitment and accurate numbers will be available for the next report.
(f) A total of 667 HMO2 positions were included in the computer matching process and 644 positions were matched. Of these 644 matched positions, 18 candidates declined their Victorian offer. All HMO positions (i.e. 667) were filled either from candidates who participated in the Match (and were unmatched) or via direct recruitment of a health service. This figure is based on incomplete data and only reflects the number of PGY2 positions advised by health services to include in the Victorian HMO match. Health services are able to exempt positions from the matching process, so the number is an underestimate.
(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 SA.
(i) A total of 667 HMO2 positions were included in the computer matching process and 644 positions were matched. Of the 644 matched positions, 18 candidates declined their Victorian offer. All HMO positions (i.e. 667) were filled either from candidates who participated in the Match (and were unmatched) or via direct recruitment of a health service.
This figure is based on incomplete data and only reflects the number of PGY2 positions advised by health services to include in the Victorian HMO match. Health services are able to exempt positions from the matching process, so the number is an underestimate.
(j) Commencement data is approximate and is based upon the total number of acceptances registered in the eRecruitment system.
(k) Data based on number of job offers made to PGY2 doctors via SA IMET centralised process. Employment could occur outside of this process.
