Obstetrics & Gynaecology: Advanced Gynaecology Trainee 2024



Looking to take your career in obstetrics and gynaecology to the next level? Look no further!

Mater Mothers Hospital is a premier women’s health facility and Queensland’s largest maternity care provider; delivering more than 12,000 babies every year.   Mater Health is also the state’s largest provider of publicly funded gynaecology services, receiving more than 400 general gynaecology and subspecialty referrals each month.  Mater is excited to be able to offer a highly sought-after 12-month Advanced Training position in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, commencing February 2024.  The successful candidate will have the opportunity to advance their vaginal, open, laparoscopic and office procedural skills with exposure to a range of operating lists over the 12-month period.  The role also includes ample opportunity to be involved in the management of high-risk pregnancies.


Position description:

Mater Mother’s Hospital is seeking a talented and enthusiastic 5th or 6’th year trainee for the role of Advanced Gynaecology Trainee.  This role is ideally suited to trainees wishing to enhance their general and advanced gynaecological skills, while continuing to consolidate their antenatal, intrapartum and post-natal care of complex pregnancies.  This position provides ample opportunity for independent surgical practice, with consultant oversight.  We have established this position, recognising the increasing expectations of the generalist O&G to have a high level of general and laparoscopic gynaecological surgical skills and limited opportunities for advanced trainees to develop these skills outside of subspecialty training.  The Advanced Gynaecology roles includes exposure to colposcopy, ambulatory gynaecology, general gynaecology, advanced laparoscopy, fertility assessment and adolescent gynaecology.  This position will also include exposure to tertiary-level obstetrics whilst working in Australia’s largest maternity hospital.  There will also be an opportunity for interested registrars to participate in the Mater Flying O&G Service, comprising week-long gynaecology-focussed rotations to rural and regional Queensland.  Mater Mothers Hospitals have a dynamic education, audit and research program and the successful applicant will be expected to be actively involved in these activities.


About you:

This Advanced Training role would ideally suit a Senior Registrar intending to pursue a career in general obstetrics and gynaecology and is specifically targeted at Level 5/6 trainees. The successful applicant may wish to undertake the Generalist Gynaecology ATM, the Colposcopy ATM and/or Hysteroscopy/Laparoscopy ATM. 

Trainees who have completed their core training requirements are encouraged to apply.

Experienced core trainees considering moving interstate will also be considered.
