The Role and Hospital
Albury Wodonga Health (AWH) is a unique cross-border public health service and the largest regional health service between Sydney and Melbourne. We support an outer catchment population of 250,000. We are a dynamic organisation undergoing significant growth, with plans for new Emergency and Mental Health facilities underway.
As a regional Emergency Department there are no concerns about deskilling in a specialty area. There is an extensive case mix with ample opportunities for maintaining procedural skills, such as, intubation, chest tubes, procedural sedations and joint relocations.
There is a wide range of subspecialties including: general medicine, respiratory, infectious diseases, cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology, haematology, oncology, general surgery, orthopaedics, ENT, maxillofacial and paediatric surgery. Other specialties include paediatrics, psychiatry, ophthalmology, obstetrics & gynaecology.
Applicants should be registered (or eligible for registration) as a specialist with the Medical Board of Australia and be a Fellow of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (FACEM) or equivalent as an overseas trained specialist who has completed their training in either the UK, Ireland, Canada, USA or New Zealand.
Albury Wodonga is surrounded by a rural landscape which brings with it a range of tourist activities including the Rutherglen wine region, Milawa Fine Food trails and historic Beechworth. There is easy day access to the Falls Creek ski fields, Mount Hotham and Dinner Plain Resorts, not to mention the mountain biking trails of Mt Beauty, Yackandandah, Beechworth and Bright. For hiking enthusiasts we also sit close to Victoria’s High Country, the Kosciuszko Alpine Region and Buffalo National Park.
This stunning region offers a family friendly lifestyle along with excellent nightlife and cultural activities. Affordable housing and reasonable cost of living, great schools and Universities all make this location one of the best regional cities in Australia.
