Position: Staff Specialist/VMO General Surgeon
Location: Regional Victoria, 2 hours from Melbourne
Salary: as per VIC award + generous package
Contract: 0.5 FTE, permanent
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are again supporting a leading hospital in regional Victoria to find a suitably qualified General Surgeon.
A rare opportunity has come available to join an established General Surgery team at this leading hospital. This team consists of six General Surgeons and is well supported by a strong team of Anaesthetists. This hospital is accredited for RACS training and also receives medical students from the University of Melbourne each year. This role is currently 0.5 FTE, however, may have the scope to change to 1.0 FTE once the redevelopment is complete in 2021.
As the main referral centre in the region, this hospital has 280 beds and provides a large range of services to the local population. It is currently undergoing a $169 million redevelopment. It has three operating theatres, a procedure room, day procedure room and an eight-bed critical care unit. It has approximately 26,000 admissions, 8,000 surgical procedures and 1,200 deliveries each year.
With a population of 60,000, this regional city is a hub for business and agriculture. Only two hours north of Melbourne, it is known for its cultural and sporting activities. It is also known as one of the food bowls of Australia, growing a range of fruit and vegetables including, stone fruit, grapes, tomatoes and olives. Surrounded by vineyards and only a short drive to the ski fields, this region is ideal for families wanting to escape the city.
This hospital is looking for someone to join their team as soon as possible. At this time, they can only consider candidates who already have their FRACS.
