You will add to an energetic team and enjoy above award rates in a beautiful location.
This 270-bed hospital provides acute, sub-acute and outpatient services across two campuses. The Emergency Department itself treats approximately 10,000 patients per annum with a 36% admission rate and a 3% paediatric case load (no inpatient paediatrics). This department services an older patient population, provides a great cardiac service with new theatres recently developed, and holds 15 beds and 2 resus bays. You will be led by a dedicated director who values fostering your interests.
This modern city is famous for its one of a kind natural setting including pristine untouched wilderness that surrounds it; you will find yourself surrounded with natural and wild beauty, among spas and starry skies, in a foodie’s paradise. Immerse yourself in the arts and culture, heritage and history of Tasmania, or perhaps exploring the shops, markets, laneways and local boutiques will satisfy your weekends. There are several schools of primary and secondary level as well as many private colleges, TAFEs and a University which offers a wide range of course options at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The city also provides a range of highly affordable rental or ‘for sale’ accommodation for families as well as individuals.
To be successful in your application, you must be a FACEM with AHPRA Specialist Registration. You will exercise a high degree of independent judgement and function effectively in a multi-disciplinary team.
