Critical Care Medicine in Australia’s Capital City

Join our team in 2019:

We are looking for UK medical graduates, FY2+ or Clinical Fellows who are looking for a sea change. Come to Canberra on an 18 month contract and we’ll help you immigrate. It’ll be the working holiday you’ve dreamt of and
a chance to further your medical experience in a busy public hospital in the bush capital of Australia.

  • We are a well-resourced, modern general medical/surgical/O&G hospital seeing approximately 60,000 patients per year through the ED, including paediatrics.
  • No rostered overtime with flexible rostering to maximise time off to achieve work/life balance.
  • You will be well supported by a fully staffed, pro-active consultant group including UK-trained consultants who will provide educational and clinical supervision, supporting the transition to the Australian system.
  • Paid and protected weekly teaching sessions and the option to up-skill in ED ultrasound.
  • Opt in to rotations to ICU and Acute Medicine or just stay in the ED.
  • Generous remuneration package, including salary packaging, study leave provisions and up to $4,000 AUD relocation allowance.
  • We have accredited training positions within the hospital in Emergency Medicine and other specialities

The Location:

  • The hospital is an easy bus or bike ride from the CBD.
  • Canberra is within a 2 hour drive of both the coast and ski-fields.
  • As the Nation’s Capital, we have a vast array of cafes, restaurants, galleries, museums, world-class sporting facilities and festivals.
  • We have a modern international airport making quick getaways easy.

consultants, and a vibrant city to explore on days off."
