This practice is a well equipped and purpose built facility on the grounds of the local hospital. The health centre co-ordinates the delivery of services such as community nursing, an accident and emergency service, a visiting diabetic clinic, needle exchange program and other support programs.

Working alongside a highly experienced GP/VMO, you will have the ability to supplement your income through providing on-call services to the hospital on a 1:2 schedule.

The location

The West Coast of Tasmania is postcard worthy. Vibrant communities connected by winding roads tucked in between rugged peaks and valleys and surrounded on all sides by lush temperate rainforest.

Rosebery is one of the many tight-knit warm communities on the west coast of Tasmania. An active mining town nestled deep within the stunning West Coast Range, on the slopes of Mount Black. The town was founded in 1893 gold was discovered in the area, and the main mine has been in operation since the 1930s, producing zinc, lead, copper, silver, and gold, and continuously supporting the town’s economy. Known for it's beauty and tranquility, Rosebery boasts a number of attractions, such as Australia’s steepest golf course and Tasmania’s tallest waterfall.

There are several exhilarating walking tracks throughout the mountainous areas of Mount Black, Mount Read, Mount Farrell and Mount Murchison; these volcanic mountains surrounding Rosebery are covered in flourishing green rainforest, and offer stunning views of the entire area. Lake Pieman and Lake Rosebery are popular local haunts with residents and travellers alike, providing a great destination to go camping, picnicking, or trout fishing. Aside from its scenic allure, Rosebery also has a selection of shops, cafes, pubs, and a swimming pool.

Essential criteria

You will need to be a Vocationally Registered General Practitioner (FRACGP or FACRRM) with prior experience in a rural setting. It is essential that you can help with the VMO roster at the local hospital, so recent ED experience along with a current emergency medication certificate is also required. Applications from GPs who are willing and able to help supervise / mentor junior Doctors are particularly welcomed.

This is a permanent / long-term opportunity (a fixed term 12 month minimum contract may be considered).
