Position: Staff Specialist/VMO Urologist
Location: Coastal NSW
Salary: as per NSW award + package
Start Date: Negotiable
We are currently organising interviews for interested Urologists for a hospital on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. In this role you would be providing high quality care to the surrounding population. As a referral centre this hospital provides a large range of services, including: General Surgery, Urology, Orthopaedics, ICU, EM, Endoscopy, General Medicine and General Paediatrics, along with many others. It has 160 beds, including an 8 bed ICU and a 24 hours emergency room.
This hospital is home to one of the University of Newcastle's Departments of Rural Health so there are opportunities to be involved in teaching of both junior doctors and students. The NSW Government have recently agreed to invest $20 million into the hospital so some exciting developments will be happening in the near future.
Located on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, this hospital is in a town of approximately 26,000 people. The wider area, including many historical villages and seaside resort towns, has a population of 100,000. Only a short drive away is the coast of the Pacific Ocean and over 45km of beaches including some of the most beautiful in the state. Also nearby are nine national parts and the longest single drop waterfall in the southern hemisphere.
This area is known for its supportive community and high-quality schools. It is also home to several boutique wineries, making it the perfect location for foodies and adventurers alike.
This town is serviced by its own airport, but Newcastle is only a 2-hour drive away and there are also regular trains to Newcastle and Sydney.
To be eligible:
You must have your FRACS in Urology or have been found substantially comparable by RACS. If you have a Urology qualification from a comparable health country but have not completed your assessment yet, we would also love to hear from you.
