Job Description

2025 Emergency Medicine Registrar

Fast-paced, flexible, friendly! The Emergency Department at Northern Health is a large, vibrant and supportive workplace accredited for two years of ACEM advanced training.

We employ a diverse and driven group of doctors, nurses, allied health and clerical staff.

As an Emergency Registrar, you will experience and manage a wide range of interesting cases here at the Northern including complex medical, surgical, trauma and O+G cases.

You will have many opportunities to manage critically unwell patients and perform procedures such as intubation, arterial line and central line insertion under the supervision of our experienced and encouraging Emergency Physicians. You will also become experienced in ED and SSU flow management. Overall, you will develop incomparable leadership experience as you work towards becoming a FACEM.

We have a comprehensive Registrar Education Program at The Northern, which includes 5 hours of protected paid teaching time per week. We have some of the best passing rates in Victoria in both our primary and fellowship examinations and our revision programs are taught by current ACEM examiners.  There is a comprehensive weekly education schedule, along with a range of subsidised courses and workshops.

We are a TS4 accredited training site with a coordinated and structured TS4 program encouraging participation in Leadership, Teaching and Quality activities within a challenging but supportive environment.  

There are ample opportunities to be involved in Quality improvement projects which will integrate you within the department and be beneficial to your CV.

There is also ample opportunity to complete your non-ED requirements, with external rotations to

  • ICU
  • Anaesthetics
  • RMH ED (for trauma)
  • O+G
  • Plastic surgery
  • Orthopaedics 
  • Paediatric ED

Our experienced DEMTs (Directors of Emergency Medicine Training) would be happy to talk with you and explain what we have to offer you depending on your personal circumstance. 

There is a Simulation and Safety team on the ED floor, giving you the opportunity to develop your leadership and management skills. It is also excellent practice for those studying for the Fellowship. Simulations run weekly and are accompanied with a de-brief and written review with recommendations.

We have a growing number of CCPU accredited consultants and a dynamic ED US committee, offering opportunity for credentialing and training in core and extended modalities.  In addition to regular ultrasound education, targeted sessions help trainees prepare for fellowship written examination.

We have a strong leadership and workforce structure, to look after your wellbeing and to ensure rosters are fair.

We value a strong culture of teamwork and adopt the principle that we are all part of a large work family who respect and support each other. As such we encourage applications from doctors who are interested in part time positions to accommodate exam revision and family commitments etc.

We are only 30 minutes from Melbourne city and the northern corridor is an affordable and rapidly expanding area that many of our doctors live in and enjoy the plethora of dining and entertainment options.

Northern Health is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to attracting and retaining a diverse workforce which reflects the community we serve. Applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are encouraged.
