Bonded Medical Places (BMP) Scheme
What it doesThe Bonded Medical Places (BMP) Scheme provides more doctors for areas experiencing doctor shortages. The Scheme provides an additional 25 per cent of all first year Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) medical school places to Australian Universities.
Students accepting a BMP commit to working in a District of Workforce Shortage (DWS) area of their choice (outer metropolitan, rural and remote areas) for a period of time, equal to the length of their medical degree. Up to 50% of the return of service period may be completed during eligible Pre-Vocational and/or Vocational training. After the completion of Fellowship, this time can be reduced further by credits obtained through Scaling where the more remote a location, the greater the incentive discount.
What it achievesThe extra medical places funded by the BMP Scheme are intended to provide more doctors for areas experiencing doctor shortages.
