The Position
As a Senior Resident Medical Officer in Addiction Medicine you will develop your expertise in a complex clinical environment in inpatient and outpatient areas.

You will communicate and coordinate care with a multidisciplinary team, liaising with local medical officers and other community based care modalities.

The hospital provides high-level inpatient services, generally with the capacity to manage high complexity patients requiring specialist care, such as emergency, critical care, acute medicine, planned and emergency surgery, maternity, neonatal, paediatric medicine and minor surgery, mental health, aged care and rehabilitation services, drug and alcohol and a broad range of specialist outpatient clinics and services.
