About the Hospital
North Canberra Hospital (formerly Calvary Public Hospital Bruce) and Clare Holland House are now run and operated by Canberra Health Services (CHS)
This is a significant milestone as the ACT Government moves towards delivering a new billion-dollar hospital on Canberra’s Northside.
The new Northside Hospital will be built on the existing Calvary Hospital campus in Bruce. It will be a modern, state-of-the-art hospital for patients, visitors and its workforce and will provide more beds and increased services. Until then, it's business as usual at the NCH, and we'll keep providing high-quality care to our patients and community.
About the Role:
Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the North Canberra Hospital offers a wide range of experience in O&G with exposure to the subspecialties of Maternal-Fetal Medicine and Urogynaecology. The North Canberra Hospital is the tertiary referral hospital for the ACT and surrounding region with over 1900 births per year.
The Centenary Hospital for Women and Children is the level 6 tertiary referral centre for the ACT and surrounding region with over 3700 births. It has a busy Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with a regional role extending throughout southern NSW and over 200 level 3 admissions each year.
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology recognises the importance of work life balance and choice related to family planning. We are supportive of part time applicants and Maternity Leave.
This is an accredited RANZCOG Training site, but also provides a number of unaccredited registrar positions to assist with upskilling and support in future career steps including applying for RANZCOG training, or obtaining a Diploma.
The accredited positions are highly structured in line with the RANZCOG curriculum, with inbuilt rostered time for research, administrative tasks and study. There is a structured teaching program with 4 hours of protected time per week. There is ample exposure to a variety of clinical opportunities and access to rural and metropolitan rotations in keeping with RANZCOG basic training requirements.
The unaccredited positions are service roles that would suit a junior registrar seeking additional experience, or overseas-trained doctors. The majority of duties will be in the area of acute obstetrics, outpatient clinics and emergency gynaecology, exposure to gynaecological operating will be limited. Training and supervision opportunities will be catered for.
