Emergency Medicine Advanced Trainee

Experience trauma and retrieval cases on a regular basis in this busy department

  • Strong focus on teaching and exam preparation
  • Spacious and well designed department
  • Thriving and friendly regional town with excellent access to other areas of NSW
The Position
As an Emergency Medicine Advanced Trainee 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 you will also find the support from other trainees and junior staff including provisional trainees and SRMO’s with an overall good doctor and nurse to patient ratio.

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.

The Hospital
This regional hospital offers services including General Medicine, Cancer care, Mental health and Maternity services. With the Emergency Medicine department, having recently been rebuilt the department is spacious and well equipped and patients range from rich Australians owning farmlands and polo fields to some of the poorest and more vulnerable populations.

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.

The Location
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. With bush walks, national parks, an Olympic size pool, yoga clubs and many running groups, keeping fit in this town is easy. What’s more, although it is based in an inland location, getting out to explore different areas of NSW is easy.

Essential Criteria
With AHPRA registration or eligibility for registration and experience from a comparable health care system, you will have many years’ experience as an Emergency Medicine Registrar. You will be excited at the prospect of gaining almost daily exposure to trauma and retrieval cases.

With the opportunity you will experience excellent consultant supervision and tuition. Apply now or contact Steph for a no-obligation discussion today on +61 2 8353 9024 or email snash@wave.com.au.
