Bonded Medical Places (BMP)

Bonded Medical Places (BMP) Scheme - Direct Entry & Graduate Entry

Approximately 28% of CSP places in university medical programs across Australia must be set aside for the Federal Government's Bonded Medical Places (BMP) scheme.  Students who accept their offer for a Bonded Medical Place will be required by the government to practice in a designated area of medical need at the completion of their training. An area of medical need will be a district of workforce shortage as defined by the Australian Government.

Recipients are required to work in a district of workforce shortage for a period of three (3) years at the completion of their training.

  • Graduate Entry applicants will be allocated by the Faculty.
  • Direct Entry applicants will apply for a bonded medical place via VTAC.

The Department of Health has a portal -  Bonded Return of Service System (BRoSS) to assist with the administrative requirements of all participants.  It supports participants throughout each phase of their medical career from commencement as a bonded student until all return of service obligations under the program have been met.
