This is a fantastic opportunity to secure a substantive position as a General Medicine Consultant in one of Australia's most beautiful regions in Tasmania. 

  • Attractive Salary Package up to AUD$450k plus superannuation and access to salary packaging
  • Fly to Melbourne in under an hour.
  • Relocation and accommodation assistance
  • Commitment to ongoing professional development, including conference and sabbatical leave, in additional to annual leave entitlements
  • Flexible work/life balance
  • Dynamic team environment

The Role
We’re looking for a motivated and experienced Staff Specialist in General Medicine, who will work as part of the Department of Medicine across the North West Region. Servicing a population of approximately 116,000, the Tasmanian Health Service – North West has major sites located approximately 50km apart.  The Service provides both acute and sub-acute general medicine services including a large outpatient service.

The Hospitals
The medical services across the North West region of Tasmania are based primarily at the North West Regional Hospital (NWRH) in Burnie and at the Mersey Community Hospital (MCH) in Latrobe close to Devonport.

The department of Medicine has a team of seven general medicine physicians across the region currently providing general medicine services.  Sub-specialty interests in respiratory medicine, stroke medicine, cardiology or palliative care would be an advantage but not essential.

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) or equivalent as an overseas trained specialist who has completed their training in either the UK, Ireland, Canada, USA or New Zealand.

The Location
Ask any Australian, Tasmania is known for its beautiful fresh produce and seafood, attracting “foodies” with its restaurants and cafes.

The temperate climate and four distinct seasons - including gloriously warm summers without the oppressive humidity or heat, and cool winters - mean the region has perfect wine growing conditions and this is reflected in the excellent wines produced along the Tamar River, with lots of little boutique wineries. 

The rugged and beautiful North West Coast of Tasmania is a tourist mecca, has a strong agricultural sector, a developing innovative industrial sector and is positioned with airports and sea transport so it is very accessible to the rest of Tasmania and the Australian mainland. Air travel from Devonport to Melbourne is less than one hour. The property market has significantly lower prices than mainland Australia.
