BMP and MRBS telephone lines are now open

12 Jun 2018

Telephone lines for both the Bonded Medical Places (BMP) and Medical Rural Bonded Scholarship (MRBS) programs telephone lines have been reinstated. These phone lines are open all day Monday to Friday 8.30 am – 5.00 pm AEST. 

The telephone numbers are as follows:

  • BMP enquiries phone line on: 1800 987 104 (available Monday to Friday 8:30am-5pm AEST).
  • MRBS enquires phone line on: 1800 248 720 (available Monday to Friday 8.30am - 5pm AEST)

Both the Bonded Medical Places (BMP) and Medical Rural Bonded Scholarship (MRBS) programs will be radically overhauled as part of measures announced in the 2018/19 Federal Budget.

These changes follow extensive lobbying by the AMA Council of Doctors in Training (AMACDT) and the AMA and will effectively standardise conditions for bonded medical graduates, moving away from the current contract-based arrangements.

The reformed arrangements will apply to all new participants from January 2020.
