HMO Tutorial Program

Developed in consultation with the Junior Medical Staff Advisory Group, Monash Doctors Education delivers a regular tutorial program that is designed specifically for HMOs.

You will receive invitations to join us via email and text each fortnight.

Across the program, we are excited to be running 2 distinct series (sessions alternate between these):

1. The HMO Expert Series

2. The Deteriorating and Peri-operative Patient Series

The Expert Series places emphasis on practical aspects of the work that HMOs are expected to undertake in our health service. Sessions will be on selected topics that are relevant and of interest to all HMOs. The Deteriorating and Peri-operative Patient Series will cover topics from the critical care and peri-operative specialties. Emphasis on the structured approach to a deteriorating patient will be central to this series.

MDE will be trialling the introduction of 5 Golden Rules – they have been selected to be delivered in a less rigid structure. You are invited to submit questions for each of the Golden Rules topics. We will ask expert speakers to prepare and present up to 5 Golden Rules for their speciality topic. The remainder of the session will be used to address your submitted questions and invite further questions from you. The first of these topics will be “Job Application Success Stories” on the 16th of March 2021.

Submit your Golden Rules Questions (for all 5 topics) via the following link
