DPA/DWS location - A chance to work in a fast paced, exciting role for an Australian icon has arisen.

Come and see the outback with the Royal Flying Doctor Service! Working with a team of supportive staff, this role will combine emergency medicine with rural general practice, 80% retrievals/20% clinics.

A full time retrieval doctor is required for the Royal Flying Doctor Service's Kalgoorlie base. Working nine shifts per fortnight (both day and night shifts) this position would suit a career doctor or proceduralist general practitioner with acute care experience.

You will also be required to service the outlying clinics in Menzies, Cosmo-Newberry, Transline/Eyre Highway, Eucla, Lake Varley and Tjuntjunjarra. Significant post-graduate experience is required (between five and seven years).

Candidates who do not possess all of the above skills are unsuitable for RFDS.
