Why is Tasmania a popular locum destination?

  • There is an abundance of GP + ED VMO opportunities offering a broader scope of working in GP Clinics, the ED and hospital wards.
  • The pace is slower and population density is low so you can leave the bustle of the mainland.
  • The distance between towns is a lot less compared to those in other states. So you don't have to travel as far to arrive at colourful waterfront villages, secluded islands, serene national parks, wineries, and lakes. 
  • There's lots to do in every township during your time off. There’s endless outdoor activities, shopping, a thriving arts, music and cultural scene plus a myriad of food and wine trails to explore.
  • From the north to the south, you'll work close to some of the most visually stunning environments in Australia.

Of course, we have many other opportunities in other parts of Tassie, so please get in touch if you have a preferred location on your bucket list.

  • Ochre was formed with the goal of improving the way primary health care is delivered in both rural and urban Australia. I am proud that we are helping to improve the health services in this beautiful state, it feels good to be able to do some great stuff in your own backyard.
