Application Process

All Resident positions are subject to the state-wide computer matching process, conducted by the Post Graduate Medical Council of Victoria (PMCV). As such, candidates must apply to both St Vincent’s (via Workday) and the Post-Graduate Medical Council (PMCV).  


  • A Cover Letter outlining your reasons for applying to St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne and any particular specialty interest you may have.
  • Your CV (the PMCV template is recommended and includes a photograph).
  • N.B. PMCV may ask for a nominated reference as part of the PMCV application process, however, references are not routinely part of the SVHM’s Workday application process. Should our Medical Workforce Unit wish to see references, they will notify you directly.
