Job Description

You have the opportunity to join an energetic, forward thinking team, and gain invaluable clinical experience in our Emergency Department

The Emergency Department (ED) is a well-equipped, 43 bed unit that opened in 2012. It has an annual attendance of 45,000 with a 30-40% admission rate and approximately 22% paediatric caseload. The direct catchment area has a population of approximately 150,000 and for many specialties 250,000. As the referral hospital for the entire north of Tasmania, our registrars are exposed to high acuity and diverse clinical experiences.

The ED receives all types of patients including major trauma, with an onsite helipad. The hospital has all major specialties, including a fully supported ICU with ECMO capability and 24-hour cardiac interventional angiography. Only vascular, cardiothoracic and neurosurgery are unavailable on-site. Consultants provide direct clinical supervision of the department from 8:00am until midnight, seven days a week with an on-call service outside these hours.


As a Registrar in our department you will be expected to work hard, as an integral part of our multidisciplinary team. You will have the opportunity to learn from a dynamic group of specialists in a friendly and supportive team.

The ED has ACEM (Australasian College for Emergency Medicine) accreditation for 12 months of Emergency Training, including paediatric logbook accreditation and runs a successful primary and fellowship exam preparation program, with 2 consultants on the ACEM Board of Examiners.

There are opportunities for advanced trainees to complete accredited rotations including 6 months Anaesthetics, Intensive Care/Retrieval, General Medicine, Paediatrics, Psychiatry, Rural GP and Palliative Care (including the option of completing a palliative care diploma). The FACEM group have diverse interests including International EM, Ultrasound, Retrieval, Paediatrics, Wellness and Medical Leadership.

Registrars are provided with 4 hours of paid protected teaching time each week, tailored to all stages of Emergency training and experience. Additionally, the hospital is affiliated with the Clifford Craig Medical Research Trust and the University of Tasmania Medical School, allowing avenues for involvement in research and education and completion of the ACEM Trainee Research Requirement.

The department is also accredited by the Australasian College of Rural and Remote Medicine for ED advanced skills placements within the FACCRM qualification, and offers the ACEM EMC and EMD qualifications, having 5 accredited supervisors.
