(a) the three (3) years of obligation to return the provision of services are reduced in order to reduce any prior service entered into in accordance with the provisions of the person`s contractual act; Under the new subsection 124ZE (2), a person who has been a party to an act of agreement with the Commonwealth (represented by the Department of Health) for the funding of a place in the BMP programme may become a member of the crowded medicine programme. This person must inform the department in writing that they wish to enroll in the crowded medical program in accordance with the new section 124ZU, and the secretary must approve their participation in the program. The person is then considered a participant from the date on which the secretary accepted the person`s participation in the program. The person remains a participant until he or she is no longer a participant, that is, if one of the regulations in new subsection 124ZE (4) applies. PDF version:BMP Scheme – Sample deed of agreement 2019 (PDF 416 KB) This legislation will enter into force on 1 January 2020, when this rule will begin. The legal system will be offered from 1 January 2020 to both newcomers and existing participants. Existing participants in current systems have an open schedule to opt for the legal system if they wish. Existing participants who choose not to opt-in retain their existing contracts or instruments of agreement until they meet their obligations and leave the program. The BMP program began in 2004. It offers a participant a Commonwealth-backed place in a medical course at an Australian university in exchange for the agreement to work in an underserved area for a period equivalent to the duration of the medical degree, i.e. between four (4) and six (6) years. For participants who joined the BMP program in the years from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2019, the return of the previous 4-6 years will be reduced to 12 months full-time. Currently, the crowded medical program is provided by contracts and instruments of agreement.

These agreements have been in place for up to eighteen years, depending on when a participant participated in the program, and are becoming increasingly outdated over time. Due to the evolution of the policy and not all participants who accept offers to update their agreements, significant differences have been noted in the contractual agreements, both within and between systems. (a) on the day the person becomes a participant, the person`s act of consent is extinguished; Existing participants in BMP and MRBS systems who do not opt for the legal system retain their existing contractual or contractual agreements under their current system. (b) if, during the period beginning on 1 January 2016 and 31 for the purposes of new ยง 124ZF, a reference to “3 years” is to be read as a reference to “12 months”; And existing individual agreements (under BMP) or contracts (under MRBS) are complex to manage or comply with. There are currently more than 20 different contractual and contractual agreements. Any changes to the obligations of the participants, including those that would be beneficial, would require individual modifications and agreements to each contract. The aim of this legal system is to modernise and consolidate medical obligation programmes to ensure that the programme meets current and future labour needs and offers more modern and flexible accommodations to support the future medical workforce in rural areas. .
