Our continued growth has seen the addition of a new purpose built, multi-storey Joan Kirner Women's and Children's at Sunshine Hospital.
About the Role
Non-accredited Junior Registrar positions at Western Health are structured so as to provide opportunities for a doctor in PGY 3+ to gain experience and skills that will support an intention to apply for admission to the RANZCOG specialist training program. While the positions are primarily aimed to support the service components of the Division’s activity, opportunities to gain skills in all areas of O&G will be available.
Non-accredited registrars participate equally in the various aspects of the structured teaching program that is an integral part of our accredited RANZCOG training status.
Successful applicants who intend applying for vocational training will be supported by the unit in their application, conditional on meeting expectations with respect to service delivery and demonstrating relevant O&G skills.
Non-accredited junior registrars can expect to rotate through any of the following units:
- One of the four team-based general O&G units (includes on-call day- Birth Suite/Assessment centre and acute receiving)
- Night duty (on call with a Senior Registrar – Level 5/6)
- Emergency department (EDOG)
- EPAS (Early pregnancy service)
Additional opportunities may be available for participation in other specialist services such as pelvic floor disorders, infertility, maternal fetal medicine, adolescent gynaecology and endoscopic surgery.
While surgical training is prioritised to accredited trainees, non-accredited registrars may have exposure to minor gynaecological procedures, assisting at gynaecological surgery and participation in elective Caesarean Section lists.
Applications will be accepted up to 1700 Friday 13th September.
