The hospital:

The Tasmanian Health Service – North West Region encompasses two hospitals, the North West Regional Hospital (NWRH), in Burnie and the Mersey Community Hospital in Latrobe.

The NWRH is a modern facility that provides acute care facilities for residents of the North West region of Tasmania. It is a University Teaching Hospital for the Rural Clinical School of the University of Tasmania.

There are currently 9 Fellows (8.3FTE) of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (FACEM’s) working alongside other senior clinical staff. There are 8 Registrar positions available for training in Emergency Medicine; in addition, we offer two positions with a split of ED and Anaesthetics at the NWRH. The level of FACEM direct supervision and teaching is excellent.

The NWRH is an Emergency Medicine education and training hub for the North and North West of Tasmania and there is opportunity to complete the emergency medicine certificate and diploma at this hospital.

There is an opportunity for trainees that have completed their fellowship exams but are needing further ED time to be rostered on the consultant roster with supervision to ease their way into consultant practice. This has been a successful term. No nights rostered and clinical support time provided.

The ED is proud of its success in guiding candidates through the primary and fellowship examination.
