GP or GP trainee opportunities

GP or GP trainee opportunities within the RAH and TQEH emergency departments

GPs or GP trainees are invited to consider applying to work in the RAH and TQEH emergency departments to work alongside consultant emergency physicians.

This is an excellent opportunity to hone your acute medical, surgical, resuscitation and trauma skills and gain exposure to the CALHN’s specialist toxicology service, ultrasound and other procedural skills. Opportunities include full-time, part-time, and casual appointments.

GP trainees are encouraged to consider applying to complete their Extended Skills Term. There are several accredited GP supervisors available and the ED can also support interested trainees to obtain their Emergency Medicine Certificate from the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine.

Additionally, there is an opportunity to join the highly respected ‘EDGE team,’ a consultant geriatrician led multi-disciplinary team, who offer a 7 day a week service from the RAH ED and Acute Assessment Unit. The EDGE team work with frail and elderly patients requiring admission and have strong links with the RAH Community Geriatrics team. This is a great learning opportunity for GPs and GP trainees with an interest in Geriatric Medicine.

Join the casual GP pool for the Hospital Avoidance and Supported Discharge Service

CALHN’s Hospital Avoidance and Supported Discharge Service (HASDS) is looking for GPs to join its casual medical officer pool.

Launched in March, HASDS provides clinical services for low acuity patients with complex needs, providing an alternative option to a CALHN emergency department.

Positions will be based at Sefton Park (5km from the Adelaide CBD) with patients referred via SA Ambulance Service (SAAS), non-government organisations and primary care providers who are unable to deliver required care in the primary health setting.

GPs will enjoy working as part of a highly skilled, multidisciplinary team which utilises extensive clinical and other stakeholder networks to provide exceptional patient care. This rewarding role will draw on your existing abilities as well as further develop your clinical, decision-making and stakeholder management skills.
