Develop your medical career with a supportive service and strong Consultant guidance
- 90 minutes from Melbourne CBD
- 3 Consultants on per shift (8am - midnight)
- Available to start ASAP or August 2020
Depending on experience, you will be joining a supportive department as a Senior Resident Medical Officer (SRMO) or Registrar in Emergency Medicine. In this role, you will provide urgent care to patients of all age groups presenting to the hospital with acute physical and mental illnesses and injuries. You will benefit from good Consultant cover throughout shifts (8am to midnight) and there are 2 accredited Registrars on overnight who work in-charge. You will also be well supported by a team of critical care trained nurses who specialise in the diagnosis, stabilisation and treatment of paediatric and adult emergency conditions.
The service is a comprehensive, well-structured and supportive environment which balances reasonable work responsibilities with support for professional development. The Emergency Department sees 60,000 to 70,000 presentations per year, one in five arriving by ambulance, and one in six are children. Majority of patients (75%) are seen and treated and either discharged home or admitted to an inpatient hospital bed within 4 hours. The broader health service is a 700-bed service that treats more than 44,000 inpatients and welcomes more than 1,400 new-born babies in a year.
You will be working in a beautiful, accessible and inexpensive city which provides a great place to live, work and raise a family. It is Victoria’s third largest urban centre with a population of over 100,000, offering a change of pace and scenery. You will have all the benefits of living in a regional setting but still have easy access to everything a large city has to offer, with Melbourne only 90 minutes away. Locally, you will enjoy award-winning restaurants and cafes, browse the shopping precincts for fashion houses and collectables and enjoy the local wine and produce from nearby farms and vineyards. The education facilities are excellent and include outstanding private and public schools as well as higher education options.
You must hold current registration or be eligible to apply for provisional registration with the Australian Medical Board (AHPRA), with experience from a comparable healthcare system (Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, Canada or USA). You must be PGY3/4+ in your level of experience.
