This is a fantastic opportunity to work in the most adventurous and exciting part of Australia.

  • A lucrative salary package up to AU$450,000 plus superannuation (dependent upon exp).
  • Contribute to the improvement of indigenous health in Australia.
  • Work with a young population.
  • SE Asia on your doorstep. Spend a weekend in Bali (only a 3hr flight) or Singapore (4hrs).

The Role and Hospital
The successful applicant will be required to provide the following:

  • care of inpatients in the 4 bed stroke unit including selection of patients for thrombolysis and thrombectomy.
  • care of inpatients with serious neurological disease (eg Guillain Barre syndrome, immune encephalitis)
  • a consultative neurology service to medical, surgical, psychiatric, O&G and Intensive Care patients at Royal Darwin Hospital
  • regular general neurology outpatient sessions at Royal Darwin Hospital
  • regular electrophysiology procedures (EEG & NCS/EMG) and reporting (within one’s scope of practice).
  • specialist outreach to regional hospitals and remote communities in the Northern Territory

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

The Location
Unlike other Metropolitan cities in Australia where it can be easy to mistake one for another, in Darwin you experience an Australia that is like no other, with adventure at your doorstep. The Northern Territory is huge - but has a small population. Over 142,000 people live in the territory capital Darwin, with approximately 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 medicine can be complex but hugely rewarding.

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.
