The Opportunity

Western New South Wales offers some of the most iconic Outback landscapes and communities in Australia. It also offers lucrative salary packages, interesting and challenging medicine, and excellent pathways to vocational registration. Ochre Health’s origins and strong focus on rural and remote medicine started here, in the rich red soil which gives our company its name.

Ochre Health have recently strengthened their commitment to the region by winning the hospital support contract for the Local Health District, which includes towns such as Bourke, Brewarrina, Collarenebri, Coonamble, Lightning Ridge and Walgett. This provides a great opportunity for experienced doctors from a variety of backgrounds who are interested in experiencing the diversity and unique flavour of outback medicine. With a number of Ochre operated medical centres and Ochre supported district hospitals throughout the region, this is a great chance to make a very real difference on a community level, to operate at the top of your medical license, and to build on your skillset through the unique challenges of rural medicine.
