Radiologists – 5 Benefits of a Locum in Rockhampton – Discover more


There’s a reason our regular locum radiologists return again and again to Rockhampton and surrounds. I’m sharing 5 key points that make Rockhampton an appealing place to go and work, whether for a week, a month or longer term.

1. Top rates of pay – Money isn’t everything but it’s nice to earn that top $3500+GST rate.
2. Good location - 1 hour flight from Brisbane, plus a 5-minute drive into the centre of Rockhampton – Easy! 
3. Warm weather – If you’re from the colder parts of Australia, or anywhere in NZ, this is a real pleasure to get some sunshine and warmth. Why not do what many radiologists do and add on a weekend before or after your locum? You can spend time enjoying the local sites and the Great Barrier Reef.
4. Yeppoon! - Enjoy your locum stay at Yeppoon – Pristine beaches for miles and only a 40-minute drive from Rockhampton (or, stay in town if preferred). 
5. Interesting work – Part of the appeal of locums, is being able to work in friendly clinics/hospitals where you have the chance to work on some interesting pathologies and cases you might not encounter at home.

What else? Giving back! – Whenever you take up a locum week you’re significantly helping regional areas of Australia. Offering your skills and experience is a huge benefit for the community where you’re working and much appreciated.
