The Role and Hospital
Staff Specialist - Urologist, Mackay Hospital and Health Service. Your opportunity to provide high quality clinical services for the Mackay Hospital and Health Service.
The Mackay Base Hospital is equipped with leading edge technology to assist us in providing the highest level of care to our communities. Mackay Base is the first fully digital public hospital with medications management in a regional area. The hospital provides specialist services in obstetrics, gynaecology, paediatrics, orthopaedics, psychiatry, ENT, urology and oncology and many other specialty areas.
Located on the central coast of Queensland, the Mackay region stretches from secluded islands off the coast through golden sand beaches and into lush sub-tropical rainforests. The historic town of Mackay is filled with 1920s Art Deco buildings and public artworks, as well as a vibrant dining precinct. See wallabies on the beach at Cape Hillsborough National Park, dive with shy platypus in Eungella National Park or throw a line in at some of the state’s best fishing spots.
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 Surgeons (FRACS) (Urol) or equivalent as an overseas trained specialist who has completed their training in either the UK, Ireland, Canada, USA or New Zealand.
What can Head Medical do for you?
Once we have secured a job for you, our specialist and dedicated Registrations team will manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the actual relocation itself.
Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we appreciate it can also be extremely daunting and time consuming given the registration process. We’re the UK's specialist in international medical recruitment and we have helped hundreds of doctors relocate since we first started out in 2008 (you can read what people have said about working with us on our testimonials page). We take the responsibility of relocating candidates seriously and we know it’s critically important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through yours and your loved ones plans in detail, getting to know you to ensure we provide a seamless service which is second to none and - above all - right for you.
