The Northern Territory is huge - but has a small population. Over 142,000 people live in the territory capital Darwin. with approx. another 100,000 living in remoter towns throughout the Territory such as Alice Springs, Katherine or even smaller, more remoter communities.

The  unique healthcare and social issues of the population attract  medical specialists from around the world. The medicince can be complex but incredibly rewarding.

You will provide first class medical oncology services within an existing team of 3 consultants, 1 advanced trainee (medical oncology) and two physician trainees. 

Your duties will include working in an oncall roster, clinics, leading within a MDT, clinics, teaching and mentoring of medical staff and undertaking outreach clinics in remote parts of the territory. 

You will be a Consultant/Specialist in Medical Oncology and hold FRACP or equivalence overseas qualifications. Applicants who have completed specialist training in NZ, UK, Ireland, South Africa, USA or Canada will be highly regarded as will those who have been assessed by RACP.

Darwin is a modern and very cosmopolitan city. It is extremely easy to get around and the lifestyle opportunities are amazing. Schools are great and there is a university.
