2015 – Paediatric Advanced/Basic Trainee Registrar
Base Hospital | Fixed Term Full Time

Reference Number: 143523 | Applications Close: 10/07/2015

Paediatric Advanced/Basic Trainee Registrar
Fixed Term - Full Time
3 August 2015 - 31 January 2016

Ballarat Health Services is seeking applications from suitably experienced registrars to fill the post on a full time capacity from 3 August 2015 to 31 January 2016.

Ballarat is a town of approximately 100,000 residents 90 minutes west of Melbourne along the Western Highway. Ballarat Health Services provide paediatric care to the Grampians Region of Western Victoria extending to the South Australian border.

Ballarat Health Services has a 16-bed Paediatric Ward and a 12-bed level 2A Special Care Nursery (CPAP capabilities) with 1200-1400 births per year. We have a busy Emergency Department and an ICU that assists with management of some children. The unit schedules four general paediatric outpatient clinics per week, as well as a paediatric diabetic clinic, a paediatric immigrant health clinic and outreach clinics to Stawell and Horsham. In addition there are multiple visiting subspecialty clinics. The Paediatric Unit maintains close links with the Royal Children’s Hospital and tertiary Melbourne NICU centres.

The Paediatric Team consists of seven part time VMO paediatricians who rotate on-call responsibilities, two accredited Registrars, a Fellow and paediatric residents covering a 24-hour roster per day.

The positions are accredited for Rural/Regional Training under the General Paediatric SAC. Responsibilities include daily ward rounds, outpatient clinics, emergency consultations, high-risk deliveries, student teaching, an ongoing education program and frequent departmental meetings. On-call requirements are 1 in 4 weekends and 1 night per week first on call, with consultant back up 24 hours per day. Remuneration is per AMA Victorian Agreement with on call and call back payments. Private accommodation is provided close to the hospital for a nominal fee and can accommodate families with some notice.

Most registrars find this position quite challenging but extremely rewarding given the high level of responsibility and decision-making expected of our trainees. The diverse range of patients that are often not managed directly by general paediatrics in the metropolitan setting, along with a high acuity neonatal throughput, allows our trainees a true experience of general paediatrics. We also offer ample opportunities for broad outpatient exposure to many behavioural and community paediatric conditions such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorders and developmental delay, provision for joining our outreach services, and excellent exposure to assessment of Child Abuse and Sexual Assault cases as per the requirements of the General Paediatrics SAC.

On a social front, Ballarat is situated ideally only 90 minutes drive from Melbourne and even less to multiple coastal towns. We are within easy reach of many wineries, historic Victorian towns, spa resorts and mountain hiking.

If you are interested in a position in Ballarat for the second half of 2015 please contact Dr David Tickell (davetickell@yahoo.com.au. We require a current CV, a one page cover letter and at least two professional referees.

All applications must be submitted online and appointment is subject to a satisfactory police check and immunisation clearance.
