The Department of Medicine has a strong research culture with many physicians conducting independent and clinical trial based research with affiliation with the Clifford Craig Medical Research Trust.
Strong teamwork and close professional relationships with colleagues and communities are all hallmarks of Tasmanian health care. Medical professionals from all over Australia and the world work together to combine their unique perspectives, skills and experience. You will be working in an inclusive environment that’s committed to equity and diversity. There is no on-call requirement for this position but you will have rostered overtime.
Many doctors who make the move to Tasmania advance rapidly in their careers as they are able to expand and develop their management and specialist clinical skills.
Launceston, like the rest of Tasmania, is a good example of good things coming in small packages.
Tasmania’s second biggest city, Launceston is ideally nestled at the head of the beautiful Tamar Valley. The city has grown around a pretty port which has a fascinating history and a vibrant modern day culture.
The region’s natural beauty is truly staggering. What other city has a spectacular gorge of monumental proportions and breathtaking wonder, just a few minutes’ walk from its centre?
Launceston also has developed a well-deserved reputation for great wine, excellent food from the local surrounds, and a buzzing vibe in which to enjoy all these good things.
With solid experience as a medical registrar, you should now be ready to take on a more senior role where you will be responsible for supervising junior medical officers and overseeing the provision of high-quality patient care. A passion for regional healthcare and current registration with AHPRA are also essential in order to be considered for this role.
With its combination of a friendly team culture, extensive professional development opportunities and a focus on work-life balance, you’ll no doubt want to get all the details about this great position.
