We are currently assisting a referral hospital in Queensland to find two General Surgeons.

Position 1: Colorectal Surgeon
This position is for a General Surgeon with a special interest in Colorectal Surgery. In this role you would be working alongside an existing Colorectal Surgeon to provide high quality care.

Position 2: Breast Surgeon
This position is for a General Surgeon with a special interest in Breast Surgery, in particular onco-plastic surgery. You would be working with the existing Breast Surgeon to provide and grow the Breast care service across the region.

Both of these roles report directly to the Clinical Director of Surgery. They have junior support, including PHOs/Registrars, RMOs and interns. The department is accredited for specialist training and is involved teaching and research. The Hospital has four operating theatres and two procedure rooms which are supported by a six bed ICU/HDU. The surgery team performed approximately 9600 elective surgeries and 4000 emergency surgeries in the 2017-2018 year.

The Hospital:
This hospital has 305 beds and is the main referral hospital in Central Queensland, serving a population of over 250,000. It is also home to the new integrated cancer care service. The Central Queensland Rural Clinical School is based here and provides training for medical students from the University of Queensland. A wide range of services are offered, including, Emergency Medicine, General Medicine, Cardiology, Renal Medicine, Palliative Care, Psychiatry, Rehabilitation, Geriatric Medicine, Paediatrics, General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Urology, ENT, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Intensive Care and Anaesthetics.

The Location:
This hospital is located on the coast of Central Queensland, approximately 600km from Brisbane. There are regular flights to Brisbane which only take one hour. It is one of the oldest cities in Queensland and has a population of over 80,000. It is the industrial and agricultural centre of the north and is also a large tourist destination due to its proximity to the Capricorn Coast.
Along with being a major centre for health, this city is also the main centre on the Central Queensland Coast for education. It has numerous state and private schools, along with the Central Queensland University. If you are looking to get a taste for tropical Australia this is an amazing location to have as a base. This region boasts some of the most pristine beaches found anywhere in the world and is known for being one of the gateways to the Great Barrier Reef.

To be Eligible for these positions, you must have your FRACS in General Surgery or equivalent from a Competent Authority Country (UK, Ireland, US, Canada or NZ).
