Job Description:

The Tasmanian Health Service is seeking interest from suitably qualified applicants for the Tasmanian Anaesthetic Training Program (TATP) Registrar vacancies.

The TATP provides anaesthesia training at all 3 Tasmanian Health Service (THS) hospitals. It has between 30-35 positions each year including up to 7 provisional fellowship positions, with a variable number of vacancies. All trainees in Tasmania are included in the TATP.

The TATP include anaesthetic registrars, provisional fellows, ICU trainees doing anaesthesia, and Rural Generalist Anaesthesia (RGA) trainees. For all trainees, there is a strong focus on clinical experience, teaching, training progression, collegiality, and support.

The Tasmanian Anaesthetic Training Program Committee (TATPC) is a sub-committee representing the 3 participating hospitals in the Tasmanian Anaesthetic Training Program and under the jurisdiction of the Department of Health, Tasmania and the ANZCA Tasmanian Regional Committee.

RGA trainees are welcomed in the TATP. These positions are included, supported, and coordinated by the TATP.

There are RGA training opportunities in all 3 Tasmanian anaesthetic training sites, that are fully supported with experienced supervisors, relevant clinical experience, and access to excellent teaching. There are 1-3 RGA trainees within the TATP in any given year. The number of RGA trainees depends on the numbers and suitability of RGA applicants, but also on the balance of anaesthetic trainees throughout the state to ensure best use of available training opportunities for all.

Successful RGA candidates are encouraged to demonstrate a strong relevant career path including regional, rural, and remote settings.

Applicants must be registered as a trainee with RACGP or ACRRM or have completed their RACGP or ACRRM fellowship. Applicants who are still training for their primary fellowship must have successfully completed at least 2 years of that training program. Applicants must have completed an accredited ALS 2 course within 52 calendar weeks prior to commencing RGA training.

The TATP values fair and wholistic selection processes that are applied to all applicants and allow candidates to perform well and to the best of their abilities. There are multiple sources of information for selection and scores are based on the following components:

  • Curriculum Vitae (~30%) – score of your CV based on academic achievements (exams/courses/qualifications); interest in Tasmania/rural and regional medicine; and clinical experience (months or years worked in anaesthesia or related to critical care)
  • Selection criteria (~30%) – score generated from the selection criteria responses (7 criteria). Each selection criteria is de-identified before it is scored
  • Interview (~30%) – score generated from your interview
  • General impression (~10%) – based on all components of the selection process and on your presentation and performance throughout the selection process
  • References – not scored but used to provide further evidence about you to support the selection process. References are important so consider both the person (how long have they known you; what is their role?) and the information they will provide (honest, detailed, relevant)
  • Self-reflection – candidates are asked to complete the referee template as a self-reflection tool. Like formal references, this is not scored, but provides valuable information to support a wholistic impression of the candidate
