Job Description

Are you looking for a sea change? Are you interested in developing Emergency Services across our LHD? Here is the opportunity to work in our Major Tertiary referral hospital or our Regional hospitals. All this while living next to the beach and without having the hustle and bustle of the big city. 

A variety of full-time and part-time Staff Specialist positions have become available at Wollongong, Shellharbour and Shoalhaven Hospitals for passionate and motivated individuals to pursue a career in Emergency Medicine.

Our District Emergency Departments see a combined total of nearly 150,000 patients per year. We have access to most specialities within our region, including general, trauma and sub-speciality surgery, general and sub-speciality medicine, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology and mental health.

The Illawarra Shoalhaven is located on the South Coast of NSW and is a 90 minute drive from Sydney and a 60 minute drive from Sydney’s International Airport.  It has a relaxed holiday vibe, a very temperate climate and affordable beach-side accommodation.  It boasts excellent local schools and is also home to the University of Wollongong which is among the top 250 universities in the world.  The Illawarra Shoalhaven is home to a number of stunning coastal villages and rural hamlets with very short commute times into our well-developed metropolitan areas. Nestled between rainforest covered slopes and post-card ready coastlines the area offers a range of outdoor activities, vibrant shopping and engaging entertainment to suit any lifestyle.

The ISLHD Emergency Departments are accredited by the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM) for 18 months at Wollongong Hospital and 6 months at Shoalhaven Hospital of Advanced Emergency Registrar training. Shellharbour Hospital has 6 months of general accreditation. Further opportunities for teaching includes medical students from the local University of Wollongong Graduate School of Medicine through to the ACEM Emergency Medicine Certificate and Diploma. We also offer simulation, research and service development opportunities via these resources.

Our District is progressive and we are evolving our team approach with a renewed focus on teaching, learning and culture. We believe in respecting each other as individuals first and working together based on our skills, not our titles. We work in a challenging area but live in an amazing place – by having a focus on staff wellbeing and helping each other out we aim to provide equal access to quality emergency medical care for the people of the Illawarra Shoalhaven. 

Salary: $234,556 - $316,891 per annum (based on full time). 25% ED Physician Allowance may apply.

You will work 4 x 10hour shifts as a full-time worker and enjoy a good mix of acuity, pathology and paediatrics.
