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 22 July 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.
