Consultant Neurologist – Tasmania

Consultant Neurologist Tasmania
  • Be part of the transformation and expansion of the region’s Neurology service
  • Charming regional city offers a desirable lifestyle and affordable real estate
  • Very competitive remuneration and relocation package

Where could your career in Neurology take you? Ever considered a move to Tasmania? As the newest addition to this expanding Neurology service, you can make a real impact on the hospital and the community it serves.

About Your Role

Working in a regional area as one of only two specialist Neurologists, you will quickly notice the tangible benefits that your role is providing to the community. Strong teamwork and close professional relationships with colleagues are important. Junior medical officers, an EEG scientist and excellent nursing staff will support you in your role. You will also have regular interaction with the Neurology department at the state’s major referral centre.

With access to facilities such as MRI and neurophysiology equipment including NCS/EMG and EEG, you won’t be disadvantaged by working in a smaller general hospital. ICU, Rehab and Psychiatry services are on site, with stroke thrombolysis available in the ED and clot retrieval via transfer to the state’s tertiary hospital.

Although this is a full-time position, there is also the possibility of part-time appointments.

About The Location

Your new city, like the rest of Tasmania, is a good example of good things coming in small packages and is ideally nestled at the head of a beautiful 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 and it has developed a well-deserved reputation for fine wine, excellent food from the local surrounds, and a charming setting in which to enjoy all these good things.

Why Make the Move?

Property prices in the capital cities continue to break records but with beautiful scenery and a real sense of community at your doorstep, now is the perfect time to think differently and make a smart move. Affordable daily flights mean that the mainland is always within easy reach.

Many doctors who relocate to Tasmania advance rapidly in their careers as they can expand and develop their management and specialist clinical skills. Looking for your first Consultant job? Or perhaps you want to get out of the rat race and slow down the pace a bit? Either way, this could be your ideal next step.

A generous relocation and remuneration package is on offer, including: mobile phone and car allowance; continuing professional development allowance; private practice top-up scheme; generous sabbatical, professional development and long service leave entitlements.

About You

To be able to apply for this position, you must hold FRACP or equivalent, be eligible to apply for registration with AHPRA and be able to demonstrate professional competence as a Consultant Neurologist. A passion for regional healthcare is also essential in order to be considered for this role.
