  • Closing date 26th October. 
  • Up to AU390k.
  • Regional, historic Australian city.
  • 1.5hrs drive to Melbourne.
  • New, world class hospital including mental health unit with full contemporary facilities.
  • This exciting Consultant Psychiatrist position is based in a major regional city and is only an hour and half from Melbourne.

The city is on the traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung (Jaara) people. In representing this city and its region, I pay respect to the traditional custodians, ancestors and continuing cultural, spiritual and religious practices of these indigenous Australians.

This city is the largest centre of finance outside of Melbourne in Victoria. It has its own stock exchange and one of Australia's major financial institutions is headquartered there. It has a large and growing service economy with its major industries being tourism, commerce, education and primary industries.

The city has great lifestyle amenities – cultural and sporting – as well as a large range of private and government provided schools. It has arguably one of the finest private schools in Victoria.

Melbourne, only 1.5hrs away  is a world class city with a major international airport with direct flights to Singapore, Dubai etc. It is a huge cultural, sporting, academic and economic centre. With it's airport and port infrastructure it's an important hub in the Southern Hemisphere.

The new hospital is a state of the art facility with a psychiatric 80-bed facility that is made up of four units – Adult, Older Persons, Extended Care and Parent & Infant.

The job involves assessing and providing first class care to patients within a multidisciplinary context. If you have interests in rehabilitation psychiatry this would be great but the service does have the flexibility to offer a position which matches your interests and experience.  

You will either be a FRANZCP or have completed your specialist training in either the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, USA or Canada. Further you must be able to demonstrate upon application:

  • 3 years Consultant/Specialist level work experience.
  • A minimum of 6 months in a formal training post in Child and Adolescent psychiatry in your basic or advanced training (if not FRANZCP).
  • Experience in a multidisciplinary team context.
  • Understanding of integrated case management system for service delivery.
  • Strong collaborative ethos as well as capacity to work independently.
  • Friendly and personable approach to your work.
