Mater Mothers Hospital is a premier woman’s health facility and Queensland’s largest maternity care provider, serving as a referral centre for complicated obstetric and MFM cases. A busy general gynaecology service compliments the maternity service, providing the women of South East Queensland access to expert ambulatory, major vaginal, abdominal and advanced laparoscopic surgeries.
About the role
Mater Health is excited to offer a unique training opportunity for a Fellow in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in 2021. Recognising the limited opportunities for Senior Registrars to transition into a Specialist role, we are offering a part-time 12 month position for one exceptionally talented new Fellow to join our service.
This role provides a new Fellow the opportunity to practice independently as a Specialist but within a team structure of care, supported by senior colleagues. The position would ideally suit a new Fellow intending to pursue a career in general obstetrics and gynaecology in a public, private or mixed public-private capacity. The collocated Mater Mother’s Private and Mater Private Hospital Brisbane provide ideal opportunities for private practice.
Salary range: Commensurate with experience
What you’ll be doing
This position offers excellent experience in tertiary level antenatal and intrapartum care in the largest maternity hospital in Australia. You will gain exposure to regular operating lists in Brisbane’s busiest general gynaecology unit. There will also be an opportunity to participate in the Mater’s Flying O&G Service, comprising week-long gynaecology-focussed rotations to rural and regional Queensland.
The successful applicant will be expected to participate in the teaching of junior Registrars, residents and students, and to be actively involved in the unit’s education, audit, risk management, administrative and research activities.
New Fellows (who have FRANZCOG, or are expected to attain FRANZCOG in early 2021) are encouraged to apply. Hours of employment will be negotiable to facilitate private work or other commitments.
Why join us?
In return for your skills you will have the opportunity to work for an Australian Health leader and work with a team who make a real difference to the lives of our patients.
Mater provides benefits not offered in other workplaces. In addition to being part of a workplace that offers compassionate care in the spirit of the Sisters of Mercy, pioneers in the provision of healthcare to Queensland for over 100 years, you will have opportunities to increase your take-home pay with our salary packaging options.
Exciting insight into our innovative culture is just a click away!
