The Position
 
An opportunity exists for a full-time Specialist General Medicine and Gastroenterologist Physician. In this role, you will provide both inpatient and outpatient care, in addition to teaching and managing graduate and undergraduate medical students.  You will join a Department consisting of five part-time Consultants, a Gastroenterology Advanced Trainee and an RMO.

The outpatient clinic provides a large IBD and liver disease component. The position requires participation in a 1:5 after hours on call roster.
 
The Hospital

It is a major referral facility that provides general and specialist health services to a population of roughly 250,000. With recent redevelopments, the facilities are modern and functional and the staff areas are excellent.
 
The hospital has strong links with the local University, thus the medical school is co-located on the same campus. As an accredited teaching hospital, there is a strong focus on teaching and research and an opportunity to be involved with both.
