Alice Springs Hospital Emergency Registrars 2024
Alice Springs Hospital is recruiting for Emergency Registrars and SRMOs for 2024, with 3-12 month contracts available (longer contracts available by negotiation).
We offer a unique experience in Aboriginal Health - practising high acuity medicine in a young population where 80% patients are Aboriginal. You will see rheumatic heart disease, bronchiectasis, chronic liver disease, overwhelming sepsis, high rates or renal disease and diabetes as well as significant trauma.
We service an area of over 1 million km2 with around 50000 presentations a year with a 42% admission rate, median age of 34 years and 22% paediatric presentations.
The ED has Tier 1 and Training stage 4 accreditation for non-major referral ACEM ED training, including your paediatric log book/ PER, and offers a supportive training environment. FACEMs are on the floor from 0730 till 2400 7 days a week. Our ED registrars can also access accredited rotations to Paediatrics, Anaesthetics, ICU, Tennant Creek (Rural and Remote Medicine), Retrieval Medicine, as well as a new position in Aboriginal Health.

We are happy to accept applications for 3+ months, including rotations from your home hospital. You may be able to arrange this with your DEMT or Director, and we can help facilitate this. We are also happy to accept applications from ACCRM registrars looking to undertake their EMC/ EMD/AST.
The surrounding McDonnell Ranges are exquisitely beautiful, tall gum trees stand in the river beds, and we have blue cloudless skies almost every day. Camping, walking, and mountain biking are very popular. It’s a vibrant bustling tourist town, with numerous activities to keep you busy.
This is a great place to come for your non-major referral placement, to gain experience if you are thinking of doing voluntary service overseas, or if you are interested in broadening your experience of Emergency Medicine or Aboriginal health.
We do still have positions for trainees in 2023 - if you are interested in joining us earlier than 2024 please also get in touch.
