Basic physician training (adult and paediatric)

Basic paediatric training (BPT) in paediatrics and child health

Entry into the BPT pathway follows a separate application process. To be eligible for this process, candidates seeking to register with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) as a first year basic paediatric trainee are first required to secure employment for 12 months with PCH as an RMO or a registrar, or secure employment for 12 months with FSH as a paediatric or neonatal registrar.

Prospective trainees, who have accepted eligible employment, will be informed of the BPT selection process by PCH Postgraduate Medical Education (PCH PGME).

As part of your application for first-year training in 2023, we request you complete an online assessment called “Casper”, a form of “situational judgement test” during the application period before the interview offers are allocated. The assessment has been designed for the College by Altus Assessments, who will host the assessment online. You can complete the assessment at home or in a quiet private venue at a specified time that will be provided by PCH PGME when prospective trainees are contacted regarding the BPT selection process. You can find out more about the pilot and how to register for Casper on the RACP website here.

The WA RACP Member Support Office can be contacted on 08 6382 0823.

The PCH PGME office is also contactable on 08 6456 0503 or PMH.PGME@health.wa.gov.au.

Adult internal medicine

Applications for BPT in adult internal medicine will be advertised on, and submitted via, MedJobsWA. Applications for training are separate from applications for employment. To be eligible for BPT, candidates must first have secured employment as an RMO or SMR with one of the WA BPT Networks (FSFHG, RPBG or SCGOPHCG).
