The Community Residency Program (CRP) is an exciting, competitive and highly regarded program available to Resident Medical Officers (RMOs) in Western Australia. It is a great opportunity for RMOs to expand their skill set in a challenging, interesting and supportive environment.
RMOs with a new or existing clinical position in 2022 at Fiona Stanley Hospital, Royal Perth Hospital or Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital may be eligible to undertake a CRP term. Opportunities are available in both rural and metropolitan settings.
In 2022, the CRP has two streams available:
- WA Country Health Service Rural Placement (applications open 24 May 2021)
- Silver Chain Metropolitan Placement (applications open July/August 2021)
You will remain contracted and salaried to your Primary Employing Health Service (PEHS) but will be released to Silver Chain or WACHS on secondment for a term-long placement.
Further information is provided on each stream below.
