Are you looking for an exciting and rewarding place to work in emergency medicine? Could you be Tasmanian?

The Tasmanian Health Service in Australia is expanding to meet the needs of our community and the Royal Hobart Hospital is seeking Emergency Medicine Registrars. The RHH is our tertiary referral hospital for the state and our Emergency Department is a Stage 4 accredited site for both adult and paediatric emergency medicine, offering 36 months of training with ACEM or two years of advanced training under the pre-2022 program.

Life’s not just about work - it's also about lifestyle. In Tasmania, we value quality over quantity, and our culture and lifestyle are unique. Here, you will be encouraged to be your authentic self, share your wisdom with emerging medical doctors, and find your purpose. Our remoteness fosters a culture of invention and human connection, creating a sense of community and adventure.

Tasmania offers breathtaking coastlines, National Parks, award-winning restaurants, and bars. You can surf in the early mornings, go fly fishing on weekends, take photography classes, write novels, or sell preserves at the farmers' markets. You can also take part in the community, volunteer, and serve on boards. Plus, with shorter commutes, you can enjoy outdoor activities like mountain biking or hiking after work while offering your family the opportunity to thrive in a safer, more adventurous place.

The Role

As a Registrar in our Emergency Department, you'll provide emergency care to patients while also having the opportunity to rotate through other specialties such as anaesthetics, intensive care, paediatrics, trauma, and more. 

We offer Special Skills Placements in Medical Education/Simulation & Emergency Medicine Research, and candidates can be supported through rotations including hyperbaric medicine, neo-natal/paediatric ICU and general medicine.  Our education program is highly valued, with dedicated preparation programs for ACEM primary and fellowship examinations. 

Rostering is flexible to help you maintain a work-life balance, and we offer extensive salary packaging options, leave benefits, mentoring and support, diverse career pathways, and generous relocation support packages.

You will be joining a department dedicated to the wellbeing of its staff, exemplified by winning the ACEM Wellbeing Award in 2022 for our numerous wellbeing strategies embedded in our daily work practices.

The Emergency Department provides opportunities for you to gain additional qualifications in Emergency Medicine, such as: 

  • Emergency Medicine Certificate 
  • Emergency Medicine Diploma / Advanced Diploma
  • Extended Skills Training for GP Trainees
  • Advanced Specialised Training for ACCRM Trainees
