DIT Manager of the Year

In this category we are looking for managers who:

  • Evidence of compassion, support, fairness and diligence
  • Support from Doctors in Training, JMOs, Managers and Senior Medical Staff

To qualify the nominee must:

  • be a non-clinical administrator or manager
  • be the liaison between JMOs/DITs, senior clinicians and administrators
  • be responsible for rostering (inclusion of evening, overnight, and weekend)
  • assign and collate term allocations
  • be responsible for overseeing the training, education, wellbeing and provide pastoral care to JMOs/DITs (inclusion of JMO Managers, BPT Managers, Surgical Skills Managers)

Last year's winner, Jessica Moore, won for being sympathetic, fair, motivating, and endlessly supportive.

Being a JMO Manager is a complicated role that requires professionalism and communication – skills in which Ms Moore is extremely proficient. But the real reason she is so well liked and respected by the JMOs, RMOs, registrars and consultants of the Hunter New England Network is because she always makes time for people – no matter how big or how small their issue might be.
