Funding for STP posts

Salary Support

The Specialist Training Program (STP) provides organisations with funding of a salary contribution of $105,000 (ex. GST) per FTE post per year.

The duration of the funding awarded is determined by the Department of Health (DoH), and can be for a single year or for multiple years.

Additional forms of funding:

Rural Loading

STP Posts in regional and remote areas of Australia may be eligible for an annual loading of up to $30,000 (GST exclusive). This loading is provided by the Commonwealth and managed by the RANZCP, and assists with additional costs associated with having an STP training position in regional and remote settings.

Applicants who are successful in their application for STP funding will have their eligibility for the rural loading allowance determined at the time of application.

Rural Loading Guidelines are available to assist post providers on eligibility, use of funding and payment.

Private Infrastructure and Clinical Supervision Allowance (PICS)

Under the Private Infrastructure and Clinical Supervision Allowance (PICS) scheme, private-sector organisations with currently funded STP training posts may be eligible for funds to cover infrastructure and clinical supervision.

For each private-sector FTE training post the maximum amount available is:

$30,000 (ex. GST) per annum pro rata for clinical supervision and/or infrastructure costs.

Applicants who are successful in their application for STP funding will have their eligibility for the PICS allowance determined at the time of application.

PICS Guidelines are available to assist post providers on eligibility, use of funding and payment.
