Experience trauma and retrieval cases on a regular basis in this busy department
- Strong focus on teaching and career development
- Spacious and well designed department
- Thriving and friendly regional town with excellent access to other areas of NSW
As a Senior Registrar in Emergency Medicine, you will find yourself joining a department that offers the opportunity to gain a wide variety of exposure from trauma and majors to GP and run-of-the-line minors. With strong importance placed on teaching and exam preparation, there is a heavy consultant presence meaning you find yourself well supported on a daily basis. Along with consultants covering 7am to midnight 7 days per week, you will also find the support from trainees, SRMO's and a part-time CMO, with an overall good doctor and nurse to patient ratio. As a Senior Registrar, you will be confident to be in charge on night shifts.
With 43,000 presentations being seen annually on average you will find yourself busy enough to experience the variety and develop your skills but quiet enough for the consultants to push for evidence-based practise to reflect the forefront of medical practise. On offer is a two-year contract, commencing February 2020.
This regional hospital offers services including General Medicine, Cancer care, Mental health and Maternity services. Being a trauma centre for the region, you will gain experience in retrieval and trauma cases on a regular basis. The Emergency Department itself sees 45,000 presentations per year with an admission rate of 25% and increasing. With 18 major beds there is also a large 3 bed resus area, 2 isolation rooms and 2 Psych rooms as well as a short-stay unit.
Life in this region will allow you to gain a whole new experience to the usual city life. Aside with socialising and building strong friendships with your fellow ED colleagues, time off can be spent enjoying music, playing sports, going camping, exploring the nearby scenery and making the most of all the high-quality brunch spots. There are plenty of options to keep fit, with bush walks, national parks, an Olympic size pool, yoga clubs and many running groups locally. What's more, although it is based in an inland location, getting out to explore different areas of NSW is easy.
You must hold current registration or be eligible to apply for registration with the Australian Medical Board (AHPRA), with experience from a comparable health care system.
