Consultant Psychiatrist – Forensic Psychiatry

An opportunity is available for a specialist psychiatrist with training in forensic psychiatry for Hobart, Tasmania – a fantastic location often overlooked by people heading to the major metropolitan cities.

  • Fantastic lifestyle, with a laidback cosmopolitan vibe
  • Remuneration package of up to AUD$500k (depending on experience)
  • Great family lifestyle, excellent schools, with beautiful scenery
  • Easy access to Melbourne and Sydney with short, regular, daily flights

The Role
In collaboration with other psychiatrists and mental health professionals within Mental Health Services the Consultant Psychiatrist provides a wide range of psychiatric services to inmates within the Statewide Prison Service, patients of a specialist secure mental health facility and to clients of the Community Forensic Mental Health Service, functioning as a fully qualified and self-motivated professional capable of providing clinical leadership within a multi-disciplinary team.

Requirements
Applicants should be registered (or eligible for registration) as a specialist with the Medical Board of Australia and be a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (FRANZCP) or equivalent as an overseas trained specialist who has completed their training in either the UK, Ireland, Canada, USA or New Zealand.

  • 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.

The Location
Hobart is the capital city of Tasmania that sits right on the water, it’s a picturesque and interesting place to explore. Here, you can enjoy all the facilities of modern city living with excellent schools and affordable housing, whilst being free of traffic and large commutes.

And ask any Australian, Tasmania is known for its beautiful fresh produce and seafood. There’s a real dedication to providing a truly authentic food and wine experience. The temperate climate and four distinct seasons - including gloriously hot summers without the oppressive conditions and cool winters - the region has perfect winegrowing conditions and this is reflected in the excellent wines produced all around Tasmania, with lots of little boutique vineyards you can spend time wine tasting.

Being such a compact island state, its easy to explore and go beyond the city up into the mountains or along the coastal roads. The diverse landscape lends itself to just about every outdoor experience you could wish for, from the world class golf courses, long distance running courses, mountain bike trails, and of course, the famous Sydney to Hobart yacht racing. But there really is so much to see and do.
