Career, salary and lifestyle - you can have it all with this opportunity

  • Work in a tight-knit supportive team

The Position
An opportunity has just become available for a Career Medical Officer Psychiatry to join this Mental Health Service. You will be fully supported by other Consultants and junior staff, who will assist you in the assessment, treatment and education of your patients and their families. You will ensure that clinical services for patients and service users are delivered to the highest professional and ethical standards, across the psychiatric service.
 
The Hospital
This hospital is one of largest of all the Tasmanian state agencies. The hospital is responsible for delivering integrated services that maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of the Tasmanian community.
 
The hospital provides more than one and a half million occasions of service annually to clients. In addition to the services it provides directly, they also contract or provide funding for a wide range of services within the private and non-government sectors.
 
The Location
You will experience Tasmania's coast where you can forget the rat race and join the human race. The location is renowned for its close knit and supportive communities, exceptional lifestyle opportunities and superb family facilities. House prices are typically less than a third of the cost of Sydney or Melbourne giving you the opportunity to live in your dream home.
 
In your spare time you can unwind by taking a walk along the beachside boardwalk or why not explore the rugged coastline with beautiful beaches, resort towns and many parks that are nearby. Enjoy walking in the rainforest and let the dramatic waterfalls take your breath away or have a family picnic near the river where you might be able to catch a glimpse of a platypus.
 
With Tasmania's pristine wilderness on your doorstep and Melbourne only an hour's flight away, you can experience the best of both regional and city living, and can enjoy the type of charming lifestyle others only dream of.
