Head Medical are proud to be working with LifeFlight (formerly CareFlight), an aero-medical retrieval service looking for experienced Doctors to join their team in Queensland: Australia’s ‘sunshine state’.

With a team of more than 130 Doctors and flight Nurses, LifeFlight undertake medical retrievals across Australia and throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Doctors work at a primary base and rotate to other locations on average once every four weeks. Each base has a different patient mix, allowing you to gather the widest possible clinical exposure and invaluable career experience. During your time with LifeFlight you’ll also be able to experience first-hand Australia's stunningly diverse and awe-inspiring landscape, including locations such as Cairns, Brisbane, and the Sunshine Coast.

One of our previously placed Doctors has written a two-part blog for us about his experience preparing for and spending a year working with LifeFlight. It’s a great read, and offers a unique insight into the kind of work LifeFlight Doctors can expect to undertake.

If this sounds like the kind of adventure you’ve been waiting for, please don’t hesitate to get in contact. We'd be delighted to talk you through the opportunities we have available.
