The Role

You will be providing day-to-day medical care for patients under the supervision and direction of the hospital’s experienced senior medical officers. This health service understands the importance of continued broad based clinical exposure and so offers a wide range of rotations for RMOs. A special effort is made to ensure that all RMOs have access to rotations that are going to contribute to the accreditation of the terms for their career progression.

Please note:

  1. There are 4 rotations over the 12 months, each one 12-13 weeks in length. 

  2. Rotations cannot be guaranteed. For the rotations in Term 3 & 4 2019 options would be limited, much more ability to express a preference for specific rotations for Term 1 & 2 2020.

  3. During each rotation you would likely be rostered at least one set of nights (7 days) – these are followed by 7 days off .

  4. Some rotations are in more rural locations, such as Bega and Goulburn.
