Why Tasmania?

It’s different here.

Life in Tasmania provides a quality work/life balance. Here you can pursue what drives you, both professionally and personally.

Today, as the rest of the world feels increasingly generic, our different-ness – our Tasmanian-ness – is among our most valuable assets. We invite you to be part of this special place, to quietly pursue the extraordinary, whether it be bushwalking, mountain biking or paddock to plate dining.

Who Are We Looking For?

We are seeking a motivated and experienced Staff Specialist in General Medicine to work as part of the Department of Medicine across the North West Region.

Servicing a population of approximately 116,000, the Department of Health – North West (DoH), has major sites located approximately 50km apart. The DoH provides both acute and sub-acute general medicine services including a large outpatient service. The department of Medicine has a team of eight general medicine physicians across the region currently providing general medicine services. Three of the physicians have subspecialties/interests in endocrinology, geriatrics, nephrology and cardiology.

This position will be attractive to highly skilled and motivated medical professionals who view challenges as opportunities and is driven by a passion to improve healthcare in the complex world of modern health systems. The right applicants will play a key role in developing health care at both patient and system levels. Sub-specialty interests in palliative care, rehab, geriatrics or gastroenterology would be an advantage but not essential.

The DoH offers a comprehensive undergraduate and graduate clinical training program, with close ties to the University of Tasmania through the Rural Clinical School. As such, you will be responsible for providing leadership and help with the delivery of the Undergraduate general medical education program.
