Job Description

Are you looking for a sea change? The Illawarra Shoalhaven is located on the beautiful south coast of NSW, 90 minute drive from Sydney. Here is the opportunity to work at one of our Regional hospitals while living next to the beach.

Full-time and part-time Staff Specialist positions are available at Shellharbour and Shoalhaven Hospitals. The district has major re-development plans for both Shellharbour and Shoalhaven hospitals offering Emergency Physicians the chance to shape the service for the future.

As an Emergency Physician at Shellharbour Hospital, you will be a part of a progressive team of clinicians who are valued and respected. With a full range of adult and paediatric medical and surgical presentations, your diagnostic skills will be utilised to make timely and appropriate disposition decisions in an environment where only General Medicine, Geriatrics and Psychiatry are on-site – you will appreciate the receptive relationship you have with Wollongong, the referral hospital for the region just 30 minutes away. Your critical care skills will be appreciated both in the department and as a back up to the in-patient services with whom you will have a collegiate working relationship. Your department management skills will be greatly utilised in maintaining flow and supervising other clinicians while also enabling you to engage one on one with a variety of patient presentations. Your non-clinical time will be spent pursuing career development opportunities, teaching and training at both an undergraduate and postgraduate level and participating in the activities of the broader hospital. You will be supported by an engaged hospital and department executive who share the same CORE values.

As an Emergency Physician at Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital you will be entering the role at an exciting time for our Emergency Department. The hospital is currently undergoing a $434 million re-development project which will include a new state-of-the-art emergency department. We are recruiting to a number of new positions created to support our existing team as we increase our workforce to meet the demands and challenges of 40,000 attendances per annum. Rapidly gaining a reputation for training and development, we pride ourselves in supporting staff achieve their potential and pursue their areas of special interest. With a pledge to providing “only the best” for patients under our care, we are also committed to sustainable models of working as we focus on staff well-being. A remarkable opportunity to practice rural emergency medicine in coastal NSW within 60 minutes of Wollongong and 2 hours of Sydney.
