A comprehensive Cancer Service, based in Tasmania, are seeking to welcome a Medical Oncologist to their team. 

Based in a beautiful regional centre, you will also have plenty of opportunities to experience the natural wonders that Tasmania is famous for. Each week you will attend clinics held at regional hospitals within the service. With only one other Oncologist serving that area, your input will make a big difference. During your time off, you can explore and unwind in the peaceful serenity of Tasmania’s breath-taking nature.


Why make the move?

Dedicated to providing the highest standards of healthcare to its community, the staff and hospital foster a commitment to best practice and continuous improvement, education and research.

You will be working within a highly committed, supportive and team focused environment. This dynamic team is proud to make a difference within their local community.

When you’re not working, you can enjoy the stunning natural attractions, historic streetscapes and thriving restaurants and bars that surround the practice.


Benefits you can expect

    • Motor vehicle allowance
    • Communications allowance
  • Generous Relocation allowance provided
  • Wonderful location with a charming historic town, rich cultural heritage and a magnificent food and wine scene


Lifestyle Features

From the squeaky white sand and lichen-splashed granite of the east coast to the bleak alpine plateaus of Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park, Tasmania punches well above its weight when it comes to natural beauty. Hiking opportunities range from short forest trails leading to waterfalls, to multiday wilderness epics with no one else in sight. You can explore the island’s craggy coastlines and wild rivers by kayak, raft, yacht or cruise boat. Tassie’s native wildlife is ever-present: spy Tasmanian devils after dark, share the Southern Ocean swell with seals and dolphins, or watch penguins waddling home at dusk.
