Emergency Medicine Locum Work in Sunny Western Australia

Published on 01/05/2018

All across Australia there are opportunities for locum and permanent doctors to take up work in emergency medicine. The emergency department (ED) forms the hub of the typical Australian hospital, and they usually have a lively, fast-paced and exciting working atmosphere, where highly trained doctors and nurses work together to provide excellent patient care. This unique workplace is well-suited to team-oriented, decisive, resilient, and sociable individuals with excellent interpersonal skills, who thrive upon a challenge, and are keen to develop and perfect their knowledge and skills in fast and effective patient assessment and care.

Emergency medicine is highly valued in Australian hospitals, especially in regional, rural, and remote areas, where emergency treatment is crucial to life in the Australian outback. Choosing to work outside of the city allows locum doctors to select locations that appeal to them, and to feel valued working in a community where their skills and special expertise are truly appreciated. Working emergency medicine jobs also gives doctors the opportunity to undertake a range of exciting and interesting activities in their own time between shifts – activities like hiking, swimming, and abseiling, hobby horticulture, and birdwatching, that they wouldn’t be able to do whilst working in an inner-city environment.

Currently there are many hospitals in Western Australia that are in need of emergency medical staff, as a result, WA has become a literal "hot-spot" for both locum and permanent medical jobs in Australia including specialist openings like gp anaesthetics locum jobs. In coastal towns and cities such as Perth, Albany, and Bunbury, locums can live and work in a sunny, scenic location by the sea, enjoying all the benefits of coastal life, such as stunning ocean sunsets, soothing sea breezes, swimming, surfing, and strolling along beaches – all with the added delights of delicious local produce and fresh seafood. Locums can bring vital emergency care to the indigenous peoples living on their traditional land, as well as see first-hand the fascinating aboriginal culture that thrives there, and experience the ancient, untouched Australian landscape.

Whether you are looking for a working holiday by the sea, or the opportunity to bring your medical expertise to remote communities in outback Australia, Ochre Recruitment can help you find the perfect place to take up your next locum role.
