The Women's and Children's Services Division at Sunshine Hospital is offering 2 (6 or 12 month placements) Paediatric Registrar positions in 2013 - commencing on the 4th February 2013.

These posts are accredited by the RACP for Advanced Training in General Paediatrics.

The positions will suit paediatric trainees wanting an opportunity to develop skills in general paediatrics in a supportive environment, with a focus on the development of independent practice. Job Sharing is possible if required.

Sunshine Hospital is expanding in the next year with the Acute Services Building currently under construction - which is due for completion in early 2013.  The 4-level building will offer a range of services which will include a 26 cot special care nursery.  This addition will increase the inpatient capacity which will result in the need for additional staff numbers of junior medical staff to be increased in the Paediatric Ward service.  Therefore, the Registrar numbers for the unit are currently under review and confirmation of this should be released later in the year.

•    There will be at least 8 paediatric registrar positions in total across Sunshine Hospital (Paediatric and Emergency Paediatric), so plenty of peer support
•    Assistance / supervision of Junior Residents seconded from Royal Children's Hospital and from Western Hospital is an important part of the position

•    Wide variety of paediatric conditions, with the need to transfer and liaison with PETS, NETS and paediatric subspecialties frequently required
