Monash Health is an impressive organisation of seven public hospitals, 21 community health sites, five aged care facilities, university affiliated international research and tertiary education. We provide healthcare for the entire lifespan from pre-birth to palliative care and all stages in between, and we have recently opened the new 230-bed Monash Children’s Hospital.

About Monash Doctors

There are more than 900 Junior Medical staff positions at Monash Health in over 200 medical specialties, to help grow your career. We offer unparalleled opportunities in Victoria’s largest & most clinically diverse teaching health service.

About Monash Children’s Emergency

Monash Children’s Hospital is a fully integrated primary, secondary and tertiary health service to approximately a third of the state’s children. It also plays a central role in the delivery of many state wide tertiary services. It is the third largest provider of paediatric medical services in Australia. Together we seek to deliver quality patient-centred health care and services that meet the needs of our diverse community.

Monash Children’s has three campuses, with all tertiary care provided at Monash Medical Centre Clayton (MMC). The full range of medical and surgical subspecialty care is available at MMC.

MMC Paediatric Emergency Department sees over 38,000 paediatric attendances annually, with a high acuity rate (almost 50% triage category 1–3), and an admission rate of over 30%. The paediatric ED at MMC is co-located next to the Adult ED but staffed separately. We are the paediatric tertiary referral centre for south-eastern Victoria. Monash Children’s new hospital facilities opened in 2017, further establishing Monash Health as a leader in paediatric care. MMC is accredited for 12 months of PEM training.
