I am excited to share that Teaching for Impact (TFI) has officially entered into a partnership with JMO Vic, a branch of the Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria (PMCV), to develop a new clinical resource called the JMO Companion App, which we hope will benefit junior doctors for generations to come.


The practical knowledge required for junior doctors to operate effectively in their roles are too often left to be acquired on the job, resulting unnecessary stress at the beginning of new rotations and deficiencies in the quality of care provided to patients. While resources are available to assist junior doctors, many are not optimized for use by junior doctors working under demanding time pressures.


The JMO Companion App seeks to address these issues by providing a free, comprehensive and mobile-accessible clinical resource, which synthesizes existing evidence-based guidelines vetted by senior consultants, to specifically support junior doctors in being able to confidently assess and respond to ward scenarios in a timely manner. 


We are delighted to be able to collaborate with one of the peak representative bodies for junior doctors in Victoria in developing this app, and invite exceptional junior doctors and final year Medical students, passionate about medical education and patient safety to apply to be part of this ambitious but impactful initiative.

Expressions of interest close 11.59 PM on 26 July 2021. For all enquiries, please email project lead Dr Winston Dzau at
