Trauma staff specialists supervise a team comprising senior registrars, registrars and resident medical officers from a variety of professional backgrounds. Medical staff at all levels will benefit from the opportunity to work closely with the Clinical Nurse Consultant and experienced Trauma Case Managers, who champion a holistic approach to care and continuity throughout each patient’s injury journey. Trauma staff specialists provide expert medical advice to other inpatient teams and will represent the trauma service at multidisciplinary meetings for complex patients.

The Trauma Service provides two hours of protected teaching time for medical staff. Additional quality improvement, educational, research and administrative activities can be negotiated.

The Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH) is located in the beautiful waterfront city of Hobart, framed between the Derwent River and Kunanyi / Mt Wellington and offers access to fine dining, impressive arts and a wide choice of accommodation within a short commute.
