We have several positions specifically designed for the peri-fellowship years which would also suit overseas trained specialists interested in relocating to Australia.
These are 1 or 2 year posts that can be 100% Emergency Medicine but can also be a 50/50 Fellowship position to enhance your CV and future employability if that is your preference. Currently we have fellowships available in Geriatric Emergency Medicine (in partnership with our own group of Geriatricians based in the ED) and Research (in partnership with our Professor and his research team). Other fellowships that may become available in the future are Ultrasound (with a view to DDU completion); Toxicology and Simulation.
"Charlie's'" ED is one of 3 adult tertiary hospitals in Perth. We are the state neurology and cancer centre, the home of lifeinthefastlane.com, a world leader in emergency ultrasound and we have one of the largest groups of Toxicologists in the country. We have a long history of educational excellence with the foundation president of ACEM being a former head of department (Dr Tom Hamilton) and we have multiple ACEM Buchanan prize winners on staff.
You'll be joining a group with 25 FTE of consultants and 5 Senior registrars in an amalgamated roster working 4 x 10 hour shifts a week, with 1 evening a week and no rostered night shifts. You will be working 15 weekends a year (with days off in lieu). Weekend and evening penalty rates will substantially enhance the salary. You'll be joining us as we soon commence a major redevelopment which will include building a dedicated Toxicology unit and further down the line, the co-location of the new women and newborn hospital.
