JOB DESCRIPTION

Emergency Department Medical Officer Role


Western Health is a major tertiary health service serving a diverse, multicultural and multilingual community in the rapidly growing western suburbs of Melbourne. It operates three Emergency Departments (ED) at the Footscray, Sunshine and Williamstown campuses.


A graduated multi-stage opening of the expanded Sunshine Emergency Department will continue throughout 2021 with a large uplift in both clinical spaces and associated workforce including new resuscitation, fast track, short stay and paediatric hubs. When fully commissioned, it will also include a Behavioural Assessment Unit and a crisis hub. The construction of the New Footscray Hospital has commenced and is planned for completion in 2025.


The ED Medical officer role is ideal for those with 2+ years post graduate experience, wanting a broad emergency experience, without yet being committed to a career in ED. It provides an opportunity to complete an Emergency Medicine (EM) Certificate/Diploma and obtain further experience prior to becoming an ED Registrar position. It also provides an excellent and well supported position for GP trainees and other doctors wanting to expand their emergency medicine skills.


The Emergency Department Medical Officer (EDMO) role offers a unique opportunity to join a growing and dedicated Emergency team. EDMO positions are rotated across two campuses (Sunshine and Footscray). Both Emergency Departments (ED) are accredited by ACEM (Australasian College for Emergency Medicine) for Advanced Training as urban district sites. Sunshine ED currently treats over 85,000 patient presentations per year. This includes over 20,000 paediatric presentations in a dedicated (separately staffed) paediatric area. Emergency obstetrics and gynaecology are also predominantly seen at this campus. Footscray ED manages over 40,000 adult patient presentations per year. Both departments offer exposure to a diverse and interesting case mix in a well-supported environment with access to all major surgical and medical specialties.


Both sites are supported by active on the floor Consultant leadership, supervision and education from 0800hrs – 2400hrs, seven days a week. As an EDMO, you will always be supported by an ED Registrar overnight. A dedicated ED HMO education program is delivered weekly. For those pursuing additional qualifications, completion of the ACEM Certificate or Diploma of EM  is well supported. Quality and research activities are also supported for those interested in research through the Joseph Epstein Centre for Emergency Medicine Research.


The position requires applicants to be eligible for general or provisional registration as a medical practitioner with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Authority (AHPRA). If AHPRA registration is limited, your application must include evidence that the level of supervision required is Level 2 or higher.


For those wanting to live in Melbourne and be part of a great team whilst experiencing exciting medicine and interesting pathology, come west of the Maribyrnong - we look forward to welcoming you to our fun and committed family!
