The Hunter Resident Medical Officers Association is a not-for-profit incorporated association run by junior doctors, for junior doctors.


We represent Junior Doctors across The Hunter and New England Regions. Our members work in a number of places providing Emergency, Surgical, Medical and Intensive care services at the John Hunter Hospital, Calvary Mater Newcastle, Belmont Hospital, The Maitland Hospital, Manning Hospital (Taree), Tamworth Hospital and Armidale Hospital.
