Why Tasmania?

It’s different here.

Life in Tasmania provides a quality work/life balance. Here you can pursue what drives you, both professionally and personally.

Today, as the rest of the world feels increasingly generic, our different-ness – our Tasmanian-ness – is among our most valuable assets. We invite you to be part of this special place, to quietly pursue the extraordinary, whether it be bushwalking, mountain biking or paddock to plate dining.

Tasmanian | The quiet pursuit of the extraordinary

About the Role and Team:

The Department of Health are seeking motivated and experienced Medical Practitioners to work as part of the Department of Emergency Medicine across Tasmania’s North West Region. Servicing a population of approximately 116,000, the Registrar – Emergency Medicine provides emergency medical care to patients attending the Department of Emergency Medicine at the North West Regional Hospital (NWRH).

The North West Regional Hospital (NWRH) is a modern facility that provides acute care facilities for residents of the North West region of Tasmania. It is a University Teaching Hospital for the Rural Clinical School of the University of Tasmania.

The NWRH Emergency Department has an annual attendance rate of 28,000 patients per year with 28% admission rate. The Department treats a broad range of patients including major trauma cases. It is the referral centre for several district hospitals including King Island.

There are currently 12 Fellows of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (FACEM’s) working alongside other senior clinical staff. There are multiple Registrar vacancies available for training in Emergency Medicine. The level of FACEM direct supervision and teaching is excellent.

The NWRH is an ACEM Emergency Medicine Education and Training (EMET) hub for the North West of Tasmania and there is an opportunity to complete the ACEM Emergency Medicine Certificate, the Associateship in Intermediate Emergency Medicine and the Associateship in Advanced Emergency Medicine at this hospital. There is also an opportunity for registrars to participate in bilateral learning as part of the EMET programme travelling to rural sites, providing education to providers of emergency care in remote and beautiful locations under FACEM supervision.

There is an opportunity for trainees that are approaching their fellowship exams to be rostered on the consultant roster with FACEM supervision to ease their way into consultant practice, with clinical support time provided. 

The NWRH Emergency Department is accredited by the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine for twelve months advanced training in Emergency Medicine with paediatric logbook. The ED is proud of its success in guiding candidates through the primary and fellowship examination. The hospital also has other accredited teaching programs including medicine, surgery, palliative care, anaesthetics and paediatrics.

We have a diverse team, with clinicians from more than ten countries in the department and from all around Australia including indigenous Australians.  Our FACEMs have a wide range of backgrounds from advanced training in simulation and toxicology to PEM training, mental health interest, FACEMs who work in humanitarian contexts and those who are part of the Australian Defence Force.
