Job Description

WA Country Health Service - Albany Hospital is seeking applications for Emergency Medicine Service Registrars. We have six-months or 12-months full time appointments (80 hours per fortnight) commencing February and August 2025.

We are looking for enthusiastic service 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. Located on the South Coast of Western Australia, Albany is a town of 30,000 people with all the amenities of a small city with great restaurants, a state-of-the-art Entertainment Centre and stunning surrounds, with some of the best beaches in Australia close by. Perth is 420km away, with good air links.

Our ED has 2 resus bays, 8 acute cubicles, 4 fast track cubicles as well as integrated computerised work management and pathology / radiology systems. We also have an ED Short Stay Unit. There is an expanding cohort (currently eight) of committed locally resident FACEMs, as well as senior rural generalists whose sub-specialty professional interests include teaching/simulation, ultrasound and research. There is an opportunity to practice airway skills in theatre or complete Prostart as well as undertake GP advanced skills training (AST) in emergency medicine (either RACGP or ACRRM) or EMC/EMD/AEMD. We have a broad and interesting case mix, which includes all categories of adult and paediatric cases, medical and surgical. Paediatrics make up approximately 20% of our presentations. Major trauma is not uncommon.

The roster comprises five doctors per shift (including the FACEM) and overnight there is two doctors with FACEM on-call, so there is excellent supervision and apprentice-style learning. The registrar has a segregated five hours of formal education per week. We are accredited for 24 months of Emergency Medicine Training with ACEM as well as for RACGP and ACRRM. 

The successful applicants will have previous emergency medicine experience and must be registered with the Australian Medical Board and either registered as a trainee with the RACGP or ACRRM or be interested in a rural generalist medical career.
