The Position

As a part of a multidisciplinary mental health service, you will provide comprehensive general inpatient and community psychiatry services in Tasmania. You will consult with mental health professionals and health service providers including GP's and other agencies, on the assessment and treatment of psychiatric patients. A part of your role includes undertaking supervisory responsibilities with registrars, CMOs, RMOs, and other medical staff as required.

Available roles at the health service include roles based in:

• Community-based mental health service, including the acute care stream, continuing care stream, and mental health hospital in home with more services in development.

• The acute general adult mental health inpatient unit in a hospital setting.

• The general adult consultation-liaison psychiatric service in the hospital and associated facilities, including the ED and mental health short-stay unit.

The Hospital

The state-wide mental health services are a leading innovator providing a comprehensive range of mental health, addiction treatment, forensic mental health, and correctional healthcare services across Tasmania. They are continuously expanding offerings through initiatives like police, ambulance and clinical early response teams and Hospital in the Home programs, and they are partnered with the University of Tasmania on the Tasmanian Centre for Mental Health Service Innovation to improve services for all ages.

The Location

Hobart, Tasmania's capital, offers a unique blend of city life and natural beauty. It's a smaller city compared to Sydney or Melbourne, so expect a more relaxed pace and a lower cost of living, especially for housing. The city itself is packed with charm, boasting a vibrant waterfront, sandstone architecture, and a strong focus on local produce and fresh seafood. The surrounding area is a wonderland of mountains, national parks, and stunning coastlines, all within easy reach for outdoor adventurers.

Essential Criteria

FRANZCP and be eligible for Specialist registration with AHPRA or eligibility for substantially comparable assessment with RANZCP.
