Individuals eligible to be nominated include registrars, educators, supervisors, RTPs and others involved in the training program.

Categories include Registrar of the Year, Supervisor of the Year, Medical Educator of the Year, RTP Innovation, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Training, and Environmental Encouragement.
