If you are interested in an exciting job with a broad range of clinical experiences, an opportunity to make a difference and the chance to enjoy a tropical lifestyle, then there is now a unique opportunity to join the Division of Medicine Team at this Hospital in the Northern Territory.
The Northern Territory offers a great lifestyle, spectacular geography and unique medical opportunities not available elsewhere in Australia. The city of Darwin is one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse cities in Australia and one of Australia's best kept secrets! The city provides all the amenities to enjoy this tropical lifestyle including fishing, sailing, sport or just relaxing under a palm tree. National parks abound - a weekend in Kakadu, a trip to the Kimberley, camping out in Litchfield Park all at our doorstep. It is a vibrant growing community full of opportunities for both single people and families.
The Hospital is a 345 bed tertiary hospital which is designated as the National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre and a teaching hospital affiliated with Flinders University. The catchment area is vast, and includes urban communities, regional hospitals and remote Aboriginal communities. The hospital services a population of at least 140,000 with patients also being transferred from northern Western Australia and Timor. Territory hospitals provide a range of services often not seen in similarly sized hospitals due to the wide range of medical conditions, cross-cultural blend of patients and combination of rural and remote localities.
The Division of Medicine at the hospital is vibrant and growing. The Division consists of a variety of sub-specialty units including: Acute and General Medicine, Cardiology, Dermatology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Geriatrics, Haematology, Infectious Diseases, Immunology, Medical Oncology, Nephrology, Neurology, Palliative Care, Radiation Oncology, Respiratory and Rheumatology.
The Department of General Medicine is a team of enthusiastic and committed General Physicians, supported by medical and surgical subspecialties and intensive care. The position provides the rewarding experience of teaching and supervising basic and advanced physician trainees, and medical students from the Northern Territory Medical Program.
Specialist/Senior Specialist - remuneration dependent on skills and experience.
Permanent/Temporary: Contract up to 5 years (with an option to renew)
Successful candidates would be expected to participate in a regular on-call roster, ward rounds, student and junior doctor education and Specialist Outreach clinics in remote Aboriginal communities and regional hospitals.
Applicants must be eligible for registration in General Medicine with AHPRA (Medical Board of Australia) together with Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians or equivalent specialist overseas qualifications.
