Position Summary

Austin Health is the major provider of tertiary health services, health professional education and research across 3 campuses in the northeast of Melbourne and state-wide. Austin Health is world-renowned for its research and specialist work in cancer, liver transplantation, spinal cord injuries, neurology, endocrinology, mental health and rehabilitation.

An exciting opportunity currently exists for an enthusiastic Critical Care HMO3 Trainee (Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Unit Stream) to join these departments.

Details of Department

There will be 10 HMO3 positions in Critical Care incorporating rotations through the Austin Hospital Anaesthesia Department, Emergency Department (ED), Intensive Care Department and the Bendigo Hospital Intensive Care Unit (BICU).  These positions aim to provide a high-quality, broad-based practical experience for potential entry into vocational training positions in critical care (Anaesthesia, ICU, or ED).

Details of position/position requirements

Successful applicants are required to indicate a preference for either the Anaesthesia or ICU stream. Subsequently, each Critical Care HMO will spend a minimum of 6 months in their allocated specialty stream.  The remainder of the year is spent rotating through the other two Critical Care specialties and providing planned leave cover for other members of the Critical Care HMO/PGY3 Stream. Each HMO is offered at least 3 months in their preferred specialty stream in the first 6 months.

To be successful in this role you must:

Applicants are required to rank their preferences for a Critical Care sub-specialty stream at the time of application or interview. Austin Health prefers applicants who will have completed 24-months since graduation by February 2019, or who will have completed 36-months since graduation without a critical care year or anaesthesia term in their third year.

If you have already completed a critical care year or, in particular, an anaesthesia rotation of at least 3-months duration after your HMO 2-year (i.e. third year post graduation or later) and you are considering anaesthesia as a vocation, you will be ineligible for the anaesthesia stream. We strongly encourage and advise you to apply for a position as a Registrar in Anaesthesia.

Work with us! Your reward is to work in a collaborative environment which will provide you with opportunities for ongoing training and development. Your benefits will include salary packaging, and employee assistance program.

All appointments are made subject to a satisfactory National Police Check conducted by Austin Health and if required, a Working With Children Check.

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