About the role
Mater Health Services, in conjunction with AGES (Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy and Surgery Society), are offering a unique training opportunity for a Fellow in Laparoscopic Gynaecological surgery.
Recognising the limited opportunities for Senior Registrars to develop necessary laparoscopic skills we are offering a position commencing in February 2021 for one exceptionally talented new Fellow to join our service. The position will be offered on a part-time basis (0.55 FTE), on a 12 month fixed term contract.
This position is fully accredited by AGES as a Fellow in Laparoscopic Gynaecological Surgery.
Salary range: Commensurate with experience
What you’ll be doing
This role provides a new Fellow the opportunities to further develop their laparoscopic skills in both a public and private setting, to be actively involved in Australia’s premier gynaecological surgical simulation curriculum, to practice independently as a Specialist supported by senior colleagues, and to also be able to maintain obstetric skills with rostered Birth Suite sessions in the largest women’s health service in the country.
The position would ideally suit a final year trainee or new Fellow with skills and interest in a career in minimal access surgery. The role would provide an excellent foundation to a public, private or mixed public-private career path.
This position offers excellent experience in minimal access surgery, working with AGES accredited training supervisors in advanced endoscopic surgery. The successful applicant will be expected to participate in the teaching of Registrars, residents and students, and contribute to the promotion of the Mater as a Centre of Excellence through ongoing professional development, simulation teaching and training, mentoring of colleagues, quality audit and research.
The Fellow will work closely with sub-specialist laparoscopic surgeons with interests in endometriosis, leiomyoma, fertility and persistent pelvic pain. Participation in the multidisciplinary Mater Persistent Pelvic Pain clinic enables candidates to work alongside pain specialists and gynaecologists with particular expertise in surgical and medical management of this condition.
New Fellows (who have FRANZCOG, or are expected to attain FRANZCOG in early 2021) are encouraged to apply.
This is an exceptional opportunity offering an attractive remuneration package commensurate with the increased responsibilities of this role.
