  • Located just a 25 min drive from Sydney CBD
The Opportunity
As a Forensic Registrar you will provide clinical care to patients in the Hospitals, as well as, other allocation clinical areas. All clinical duties are provided under the supervision of a nominated consultant psychiatrist.
This position is suited to an Advanced Trainee, and you will participate in the weekly academic program for psychiatry trainees, and teaching of Junior Medical Officers and Medical Students as appropriate. Advanced Trainees will have additional training obligations as determined by the RANZCP Advanced Forensic Training by in-laws and monitored by the NSW Director of Training Forensic Psychiatry.

The Hospital
This leading hospital is a 135 bed, high secure mental health facility. It was purpose-designed and built to enhance the delivery of contemporary clinical programs.  It has five accommodation units covering the clinical spectrum from high dependency, acute care, continuing care to long stay/rehabilitation. There are specialised units within the hospital for adolescents and women.
The service accommodates formal forensic patients (persons found not guilty of an offence by reason of mental illness or are unfit to plead because of mental illness); correctional patients (sentenced and remanded inmates who become mentally ill while in custody and require treatment in a mental health facility); and civil patients who require care in a high secure environment.
