The Position
As an Emergency Medicine Staff Specialist, you will be joining a developing department led by a FACEM Director, in an exciting time as it continues to go from strength to strength. As the health service as a whole experiences growth, you will help bring the best for the Emergency department in terms of the care provided to its patients and the education and guidance offered to registrars and junior staff. You will also show a commitment to your own continued medical education whilst having the flexibility to commit to an equitable hospital on-call roster.

The Hospital
This 60-bed acute care hospital offers services across general medicine, general surgery, paediatrics and emergency care to name but a few. As a health service undergoing change and expansion, the Emergency Department itself is set to develop, along with its workforce and clinical networks. There are 29,000 presentations a year, between two sites that are 25km apart. Each site has a resuscitation room, telehealth link to Canberra and 30-bed inpatients units. One of the sites has a general surgeon with emergency surgery, CT scanner and ultasound. Most trasnfers/retrievals are to Canberra. 

The Location
This area boasts natural beauty, abundant wildlife, cultural diversity and a temperate climate. Based along the coastline, you can relax on the broad expanses of white sand and calm turquoise waters, whilst having access to affordable housing. As a small community, there is a sleepy, laid-back feel, making it the ideal place to unwind from city stresses whilst still having plenty to enjoy. With regular flights and excellent road connections to Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne you can easily reach a metropolitan area within 2 hours. 

Essential Criteria
To be eligible for this role you must have Specialist registration with AHPRA and hold fellowship with the Australian College of Emergency Medicine. You must have at least 5 years postgraduate experience but do not need prior Director experience.
