The Position
Due to growth in the region, this well-established group seeks an additional Infectious Diseases Physician to join their highly-experienced team on a minimum 0.5 FTE basis. The physician would be expected to participate in AMS rounds, student and JMO teaching and also a 1 in 4 on-­call roster for two local private hospitals. 

Extra private sessions or sessions in the public sector may be negotiable. This is a long-term opportunity to work alongside truly supportive colleagues. Within the group, there is currently three Consultants, two Registrars and dedicated Registered Nurse and Clinical Pharmacy support. The practice is staffed by a Manager and three Administrative Assistants and offers full services to Consultants for booking, billing and typing. 

A very attractive fee for service arrangement will be offered and earnings can be expected to be considerably higher than equivalent public sector arrangements. Generous leave arrangements, rental assistance and some relocation expenses are negotiable. 

The Group
This group is the principle provider of infectious diseases services to Hollywood Private Hospital and to St John of God Hospital Subiaco. A total of over 1100 beds exists between these two institutions. As well as a full range of inpatient services they operate a busy Hospital In The Home (HITH) service and a twice weekly Antimicrobial Stewardship Service at both hospitals. The HITH clinics operate as multidisciplinary clinics with an RN and Clinical Pharmacist present in conjunction with the Consultant and Registrar. 

The group operates from a new attractive suite of rooms adjacent to St John of God Hospital Subiaco and a short drive to Hollywood Private Hospital.
