JMO Forum - Who are we and what do we do?

The JMO Forum is a group of junior medical officers whose goals are to examine issues affecting professional development, training needs and the welfare of other JMOs.

Since its inauguration 10 years ago, the JMO Forum has grown and achieved many accomplishments that contribute to the wellbeing and interests of junior doctors in Victoria. These include representation from 20 hospital networks, review, evaluation and development of practical resources for JMOs, PGY2 education programs, professionalism competencies for junior doctors and development of online learning resources, to name a few.

The specific goals of the JMO Forum are detailed in the forum charter and are realised by members of the JMO Forum, comprising wholly of JMOs and supported by representatives from PMCV.
