Job Description

Bunbury Hospital, WA Country Health Service is seeking enthusiastic Emergency Medicine Registrars who want to combine a great mix of rural and regional medicine with one of WA’s best kept secrets in terms of location and lifestyle. We currently have six- and twelve-months full time opportunities available.  FACEM trainees, SIMGs, GP and RG trainees and others are welcome to apply. Part-time options are also available.

Located on the South Coast of Western Australia, Bunbury is a picturesque harbour city on the Southwest coast of WA, 175km or two hours' drive from Perth. The area is blessed with spectacular and pristine beaches, abundant opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, on and off-road cycling and world class surfing spots. It is also renowned for its divine cuisine, welcoming locals, and award-winning wines in nearly every direction. Southwest residents have a high sense of community and rate their region as a safe place to live and raise children, with excellent access to services such as health and education contributing to their positive lifestyle and general wellbeing.

About the Hospital and the Role

Bunbury Hospital offers an excellent opportunity to experience a wide variety of presentations in a regional setting.  As an ED registrar you will get unrivalled exposure to “real” Emergency Medicine (including procedures) within a fully supervised department. If you believe “variety is the spice of life” Bunbury could be the place for you!

The Campus is a 171-bed hospital that functions as the regional resource centre for the Southwest region with all major specialties present on site including ICU and CCU/Cath lab. As the regional centre for the Southwest and being the only Emergency Department in Bunbury means exposure to the whole spectrum of acute medical, surgical, paediatric, obstetric, gynaecological, and mental health related illnesses. 

The Emergency Department is the largest department in the hospital and the biggest Emergency Department in WA outside of Perth.  The Department consists of 39 beds including ED ambulatory care and Short Stay Unit.  The Department receives more than 45,000 presentations per year of whom approximately 40% require admission.  Case mix, including acuity and activity is highly varied. Our patients are younger than many tertiary sites with 25% being children. The department sees the whole spectrum of Emergency Presentations and registrars generally have more opportunity for procedures than in metropolitan tertiary EDs. Emergency Department staff may assist with medical transfers on the Bunbury Rescue Helicopter.

ED medical staff include Specialist Emergency Physicians, Senior Medical Practitioners, Registrars, Residents, and Interns. The lifestyle is highly desired, and the regional location means very short commutes to work.
