Description

Toowoomba is ideal for those who want to live the relaxed Australian lifestyle yet also be close to a metropolitan centre with an international airport. This is a great opportunity to take on a Haematologist role in a lovely part of South Queensland.

Only a 90 minute drive from Brisbane and 2 hours from the Gold Coast so is ideally placed, whether your preference is the countryside, the beach or the city.

  • Great family lifestyle, with close proximity to Brisbane
  • Local airport servicing Sydney (1h40min), Melbourne (2h10min), Cairns (2h10min) and Brisbane (40 min)
  • Main base hospital for the region
  • Competitive remuneration package (up to AUD$413 000, depending on exp.)
  • Excellent public and private schools available, as well as tertiary institutions
  • Affordable housing

The Role
The purpose of this role is to provide quality clinical haematology services, including inpatient and outpatient care and consultation service in a busy and stimulating work environment. There is also the opportunity for the successful applicant to undertake laboratory work in an RCPA accredited haematology laboratory. The Cancer Care Unit, which currently has three haematologists in the team, is rapidly expanding its haematology services and therefore the pathology component of this role may increase.

The Hospital
The Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service, of which Toowoomba Hospital is the major hospital with over 320 beds, provides a comprehensive range of high-quality acute, sub-acute, mental health, drug and alcohol, oral health, residential aged care, and community health services. They deliver clinical services to a regional population of approximately 300,000, which continues to grow. Spanning 90,000 square kilometres, the catchment area includes both large and small rural community settings and the Hospital is the major regional centre providing a comprehensive range of specialist consultative services to all these surrounding districts.

The Location
Nicknamed the “Garden City”, Toowoomba (population 125,000) is a picturesque modern city located on the rim of the Great Dividing Range. The region enjoys a temperate mountain climate of four distinct seasons, including glorious summers and cool winters.

Toowoomba is the largest inland settlement in Queensland, and the economic centre of the Darling Downs region. It is a modern city, known for its beautiful parks and gardens, good shopping, cultural and sporting facilities, as well as excellent public and private schools, and universities. While it provides all the benefits of a major city, it also offers a relaxed lifestyle and pace of life.

Requirements
Applicants should be registered (or eligible for registration) as a specialist with the Medical Board of Australia and be a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (FRACP) or equivalent as an overseas trained specialist who has completed their training in either the UK, Ireland, Canada, USA or New Zealand.

What Head Medical can do for you
Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we understand that it can also be daunting and time consuming. We’re the UK's specialist in international medical recruitment and we‘ve helped many Doctors relocate since we first started out in 2008. We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location.

Once we have secured a job for you, we’ll manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the relocation itself.
