If you are a newly qualified Fellow or a highly skilled Staff Specialist, this role is the perfect prospect for you! You will be joining an established team of 7 who provide a consultative service to their patients, be that in Emergency or other departments throughout this highly commended hospital. Your talents will be used outside of the hospital also, by providing paediatric support to community health services in the area for protection concerns of children and assisting them with developmental and behavioural problems. You will have the chance to grow professionally by engaging in staff development programmes within the hospital, as well as your participation in undergraduate and post graduate education activities.

The hospital has approximately 1000 births annually and 800 paediatric patients are seen each year.
This leading regional city has a lot of appeal due to its location, away from the hustle and bustle with spectacular scenery and clean country air. With a population of 60,000 it is a modern, progressive location offering a contemporary effortless lifestyle for all. This city boasts excellent schooling and has affordable living in large houses resulting in this city often being described as family friendly. Hosting a large range of activities including its ten-day Country Music Festival this city offers many experiences, all with a picturesque backdrop and is situated just a short flight away from Sydney and Brisbane.
The successful candidate will be a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Paediatricians and eligible for full registration as a Medical Practitioner with the Medical Board of Australia.
