(RE-ADVERTISED) Doctors in Training Recruitment 2021 - General Medicine Registrar

  • Tasmania Government
  • Australia, Tas
  • Sep 7, 2020
Medicine Full-time

Job Description:

The Department of General Medicine is the main inpatient medical unit at the Royal Hobart Hospital. On average, we admit 15-20 patients over a 24-hour cycle. As well as those admissions, there are admissions to subspecialty medicine teams, averaging a total of 20-25 admissions of Medical patients per day. The General Medicine Units are planned to be based on one ward in the new K-block in 2020, which is currently under development. Each team is supported by Allied Health specialists.

Presently the Department of General Medicine has 13 Staff Specialists, mostly in part-time roles. The teams are organised into 4 Medical Units; each unit has its own Basic Training Registrar and Intern, and 2-3 consultants. There are now 8 Advanced Training positions in General Medicine, rotating through General Medicine and other sub-specialty positions such as stroke, respiratory medicine, cardiology, gastroenterology and nephrology.

The present model of care is one of admission by the on-call units (generally acutely unwell patients through the Emergency Department), and follow up of those patients during their stay within the hospital. We are developing models of care to ensure an even distribution of patients within the teams to share workload, facilitate patient flow out of the ED, and ensure excellence in patient-centred care.
