The Opportunity & Hospital
The major base hospital of the Bundaberg region is looking for trainees - ideally with an ability to supervise the department overnight - who are interested in developing their clinical experience within a busy, just barely subtropical ED. Over the next several months, there are a variety of shifts available to work within the department (including a couple of simultaneous vacancies, should you be interested in travelling with a colleague), with accommodation and flights provided for successful applicants.
Home to 170 inpatient beds, and managing just north of 50,000 emergency presentations/year - this is the perfect opportunity to build your experience of working in a large, regional hospital; with 12 month ACEM-accreditation as a training facility; and a variety of onsite clinical specialties. In addition, the recent redevelopments to the hospital have included brand new emergency, maternity, and rehab services; with more in the pipeline to ensure the modernity of the service.
Located only a couple of hours north of Brisbane, and within a stone's throw of the Great Barrier Reef - Bundaberg is an excellent, accessible example of what subtropical Queensland has to offer. Featuring iconic wildlife parks such as Mons Repos, North Burnett, and Lady Elliott Island - there's something for any lover of the outdoors and an active lifestyle.
Should you prefer to delve into the culture of your locum placements, however: Bundaberg still has plenty to offer. Home to the famous rum distillery and brewery; fresh-off-the-boat seafood; small restaurants and eateries; as well as local entertainment and arts centres - you'll be sure to have plenty of nooks and crannies to explore in your downtime.
In order to be considered, potential candidates must:
Hold general, and unrestricted registration with AHPRA
Have significant experience in emergency medicine, and ideally some experience supervising
Have access to an up-to-date CV, 2 references, and current medical indemnity.
