Applying for the Monash Health Graduate Program

Due to the ongoing challenges presented by COVID-19, Monash Health has reviewed the interview process for Graduate Program candidates.

In line with social distancing restrictions, Monash Health will not be conducting face-to-face interviews for 2021 Graduate Programs. An online interview format will be used for this recruitment. If you submit applications to multiple Monash Health Graduate Program Streams you will only be required to sit one interview (excluding the Mental Health Nursing Stream).

When preparing your Graduate Program application we recommend you:

  1. Create an account in the Monash Health eRecruit system. When the job advertisements open on Monday 13 July, you will need to have an account in order to submit your application.
  2. Familiarise yourself with the Monash Health Graduate Program Application Guidelines. More information can also be in open job advertisements in the ‘Position Documents’ section.

Application Process

As part of the application process via the Monash Health eMercury system, you will be asked to submit the following documents:

1.  A completed copy of the Monash Health Graduate Program Application Template.

A copy of the Monash Health Graduate Program Application Template can be found within the job advertisement on the Monash Health eRecruit system.

Please do not submit personalised CVs/resumes or a cover letter. Cover letters are only required if applying to the Mental Health Nursing stream.

2. Academic Transcript

As part of your application you will need to submit a copy of your most recent academic transcript, including the grading key page. Please note that this must be an official transcript from your university. We accept pdf copies of official transcripts generated from eQuals or university online systems.

3. Clinical Appraisals

As part of your applications you will need to submit copies of your two (2) most recent clinical appraisals. Monash Health accepts copies of online appraisals.

Please submit appraisals from acute/sub-acute/critical care placements only if applying to the general Nursing streams.

Please do not submit appraisals from Mental Health placements unless applying to the Mental Health Nursing stream. We appreciate that due to disruptions to placements this year caused by COVID-19, some candidates may have to submit either second year appraisals or an appraisal from a community placement if necessary to ensure their application is complete. These candidates can then submit an updated third year appraisal via email to graduaterecruitment@monashhealth.org when it becomes available.

Please note that clinical appraisals do not need to be certified. Scanned appraisals submitted with your application must be true and exact copies of the originals.

Important Information about Clinical References

References are an important part of your Graduate Program application. At Monash Health applicants are given the opportunity to nominate four clinical referees in their application. This strategy assists us in obtaining appropriate references in a timely manner and ensures that you are not disadvantaged in the recruitment process due to reference issues.

We appreciate that due to placement disruptions caused by COVID-19, some candidates may have difficulty nominating a third or fourth referee prior to application closing dates. Those candidates should record their two primary references on their Monash Health Application Template and can submit two alternative referees later in the recruitment process if they become available.
