The Position

As a Psychiatry Registrar, you will be joining the multidisciplinary Inpatient and Mental Health Observation Area (MHOA) teams. You may also gain experience with the Consultation-Liaison team depending on trainee allocation. You will treat both voluntary and involuntary public and private patients presenting across the full diagnostic spectrum. The welcoming, multidisciplinary teams consist of Registrars, RMO/Interns, nursing staff, allied heath, clinical psychologists, alcohol and other drug in-reach services. Altogether there are 4 teams in the Mental Health Unit, each with a Consultant in charge and each with the support of a full-time Registrar and RMO’s.

Benefits include salary packaging opportunities, various employee discounts, free parking, discounted health and wellbeing services, and flexible work schemes. This hospital provides excellent preparation for any Registrar interested in a career in Psychiatry, with 12-24 month contracts on offer.

The Hospital

The campus is the first privately operated and owned hospital in Western Australia built specifically to meet the requirements of public and private patients. This service provides comprehensive acute medical care to the community within Perth’s rapidly expanding northern region. This large hospital currently employs over 3200 staff with number continually increasing to meet the demand for services. The Mental Health Services consist of a 47-bed (10 locked and 37 open) public Mental Health Unit, a 10-bed Mental Health Observation Area (MHOA) adjacent to the Emergency Department, as well as a Consultation-Liaison service.

This state-of-the-art facility is renowned for its exceptional standards of service delivery and quality of care. You will be working in an environment that is well-staffed, highly functional and well-regarded, with access to the latest technologies, so you don’t have the worry of not being able to achieve the best for your patients or be expected to run yourself into the ground. Working in such a supportive, efficient and well-equipped facility will allow you to focus on what is truly important: managing the health and well-being of your patients.

You might be lucky enough to cross paths with a turtle, a seal, or even a bottlenose dolphin.
