Currently the position is 2 full days per week with the possibility of extending to more hours.

To be successful you must have legal rights to work in Australia as sponsorship is not available with this position. You must also have a current AHPRA Registration and a CPR certificate.

There is a great culture and you will be appreciated for your contribution to the healthcare of the community.

Not only will you get to work with this great team but you will be working in Swansea, which is a pretty seaside village that looks over Great Oyster Bay to the spectacular granite peaks of Freycinet National Park. The town is surrounded by beautiful beaches, there are few towns in Tassie that enjoy such beautiful scenery and are also quiet, friendly and laid back.

What's on offer?

If successful you will be living and working in one of the most idyllic locations in Tasmania and you will also have the opportunity to treat diverse medical conditions, so there will never be a dull day at work. The nearest large hospital is a 2 hour drive so this practice is often attending to patients requiring emergency treatment.

AS this is a rural location you will also be eligible to apply for a Health Workforce Scholarship Program through HR+ to complete short courses, post graduate studies or to attend conference and workshops in Tasmania or interstate with all expenses paid.
