Join a growing and supportive regional trauma centre and make a difference to community consisting of urban and semi-rural areas
- A busy and supportive department
- Currently undergoing significant redevelopment worth $1 billion
- Enjoy the relaxed pace of life and beautiful natural surrounds of this region
As a Career Medical Officer in Emergency Medicine you will join a supportive department with good Consultant cover (20 FTE Staff Specialist) over day and afternoon shifts. You will need to be available to support night shifts and on-call support is also provided by Consultants. In total, there is a full-time equivalent of 37 staff including SRMOs and Registrars. You will benefit from a positive work culture with great relationships between Nursing staff and doctors, both senior and junior.
You will be joining a major tertiary referral hospital dedicated to providing world-class clinical care, research and innovation. Currently undergoing significant redevelopment, $1 billion has been committed to the expansion and upgrade of services along with a multi-storey car park to support this growth. 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.
The Emergency Department itself sees 200-210 presentations per day and is growing (70,000+ per annum) with a high paediatric case load (20-30%) with a designated paediatric area. It is a regional trauma centre but all major trauma is sent to the city based hospitals.
Your new home will be encompassed by nature, with beautiful lookouts on your doorstep plus a wonderful sense of caring in the community. You will enjoy a variety of activities in your time-off, from exploring the nearby bushwalking trails, eucalyptus forests and waterfalls, to indulging in the many shopping and entertainment venues, all with the bustling city in easy access. This is a great alternative to living in inner Sydney, with more affordable housing and living costs, or there is also the option to live inner city and commute if preferred.
You will hold current registration, or be eligible to apply for registration with the Australian Medical Board (AHPRA) with experience from a country with a comparable healthcare system such as New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, Canada or USA.
