Victoria's medical workforce is critical to the overall success of the state's health system. The ageing population and increasing burden of chronic disease present new challenges to health service delivery in Victoria. Similarly, evolving technologies and models of health care also generate new opportunities for us to develop and grow our health system for the future.

The medical workforce in Victoria has access to vocational, training and ongoing professional development support across the full career cycle. Support is given to medical professionals working in rural and urban areas alike.
