In Victoria, there are four rotational training schemes; Regional, North Western, Eastern and Monash. Together these make up the Victorian Anaesthesia Training Scheme (VATS). The Victorian Anaesthesia Training Committee (VATC) is the body managing the centralised application process for the three rotational training programs and is a forum for joint decision making. Each program, the Victorian Regional Committee and the Victorian Trainee Committee are represented at the VATC.
The VATC oversees a single point application process for entry into the rotational training programs. You can find information and dates on the Victorian Anaesthesia Training Committee Facebook page.
Applicants need to fill out relevant details, attach a CV, and nominate three referees. Each program conducts its own shortlisting and interviews. Applicants shortlisted to be interviewed for more than one program need to complete an online preference form.
