Registrar Posts

Our accredited registrar training posts in Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology and Anaesthesia are generally filled via the relevant Colleges. Please see their websites for eligibility:



Chief Ophthalmology Registrar

The Chief Ophthalmology Registrar is ideally suited to a RANZCO trainee who has completed two basic and two advanced training years. This position requires personal leadership qualities from an advanced trainee in Ophthalmology who is interested in combining a clinical role with a liaison role for junior medical staff in their education and training requirements. The registrar will also be involved in recruitment and development of rotations for registrars for the following training year. This is an excellent opportunity to further develop required RANZCO competencies, particularly in the domains of Communicator, Manager and Scholar. This was a new position in 2012 and it is expected that Chief Ophthalmology Registrar’s duties will develop and expand during the year. Part-time and job share applicants considered.

Medical Officer Ophthalmology

The role of Medical Officer Ophthalmology will incorporate regular solo operating (subject to approval), attendance at a variety of general and sub-specialty outpatient clinics and our Emergency Department, as well as teaching and supervision of other junior doctors. Medical Officers work an average of 50 hours per week, including evenings and weekends (as rostered). Some travel to other secondment hospitals may be required. The successful applicant will have completed years one to four of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) training program or equivalent, and successfully completed the advanced exams of RANZCO or equivalent.

Applicants must be trainees of the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine. This position is suitable to fulfill the requirements for advanced training with the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine.
