Wavelength are currently seeking a forward-thinking Clinical Director of Medicine to take on the challenge of developing the strategic and academic vision of our client’s Department of Medicine.
As the Clinical Director of Medicine, you will use your expert clinical and management skills to provide the highest levels of care to the patients who access the Department’s service. You will balance your clinical responsibilities with developing your new department and will use your passion for education to build a high performing team and drive new research initiatives.
The hospital is a modern facility with approximately 130 beds and provides accident and emergency, general medicine, surgery, gynaecological, intensive care, paediatric, renal, orthopaedic and palliative care services. The 24-hour emergency department sees 38,000 presentations per year, 20% are paediatric, 40% of which are over the age of 60 and 15 – 20% of which are admitted acutely. The hospital is also home to the state’s rural clinical school and boasts lower student to teacher ratios, increased ‘scrub ins’ and highly values the presence of the students.
With a population of approximately 63,000 residents, this coastal town has safe sheltered waters making it an aquatic paradise, perfect for year-round swimming, diving, sailing, water sports and fishing. There is a significant range of educational choices for all levels, including public and private institutions and a university campus. In addition, there is a large range of different housing options, from beach-side cottages and units to hinterland acreages, and the area has a healthy real estate market with affordable housing and rental prices. Dotted along the esplanade are cosmopolitan and alfresco cafes, shops, parklands, picnic areas, playgrounds, piers and a vibrant marina so you will always have plenty to explore and enjoy during your time off.
To be successful in applying for this role you will hold fellowship of the Royal Australian of Physicians (RACP) and be registered or be eligible for registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). You will be able to demonstrate a history of clinical excellence, sound management skills, a strong interest in research and a passion for developing yourself and others.
