Wavelength is proud to be working exclusively with a renowned accredited teaching hospital in NSW where you can take a break from training in the UK and kick-start your Australian Emergency Medicine career.

If you have had three years experience working in an ED in the UK, Ireland, Canada or the USA, you can gain valuable training in a state-of-the-art ED in Australia where you will have exposure to trauma and retrieval and enjoy a better work-life balance. You’ll even benefit from a flexible roster allowing you time to travel.

Key benefits

  • Strong focus on education and training with accreditation for training with the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine should you wish to develop your Australian Career
  • A chance to gain registration and experience in a market that is becoming increasingly competitive
  • Opportunity for career development as you gain exposure to varied medicine and network with doctors from other areas to gain their insights into your speciality
  • Enjoy a work-life balance with around 80 hours of work per fortnight which could include weekly allotted hours set aside for training and flexibility in the roster pattern
  • A relocation package is negotiable.

Joining this regional referral centre as an advanced trainee (PGY5+), you will find yourself welcomed by a supportive team with a good doctor to patient ratio. With particular focus being placed on training, education and the team culture, you will find the workload busy enough to gain exposure to a large variety of cases but quiet enough to be encouraged to practice evidenced-based medicine.

If you join as a Senior RMO(PGY3+), you will put in to practice your previous 12 months of Emergency experience whilst also gaining exposure to trauma, GP, run-of-the-line minors, paediatrics, mental health and major presentations. With a good consultant and registrar presence you will always have access to support when needed.

The hospital
This rural referral hospital includes a recently opened, spacious and state of the art Emergency Medicine department with a similar set up to UK departments including major beds, resus beds and a short stay unit. With 46,000 presentations seen on average each year, the presenting patients come from various socio-demographics.

Renowned as an ACEM accredited teaching hospital you will find your development is encouraged and supported with good consultant presence on day and evening shifts and excellent on-call support during nightshifts.

Essential criteria
To be successful in applying for these positions, you must meet the requirements for Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency (AHPRA) registration as well as having a minimum of three years Emergency Medicine experience from a country with a health care system considered comparable to Australia.

You must be able to commit to a 12 month position.
